Amlodipine (ccb) or bystolic (nebivolol) (bb), which one known to cause weight gain or acid reflux as side effects?
I want to know whether valproic acid (5 cc per day) cause weight gain, and if it causes more weight gain than quetiapine.
I see many people who take in over 500 calories a day in just soda. NOT taking that much in helps.
