Does Vesicare Cause Weight Gain

I have been taking Vesicare for 18 months and have gained 15 pounds. My lifestyle and diet have not changed. Can the medication cause my weight problem. I am normally 145, I am not over 160 lbs. Help!

Answer

I think should check with your doctor about this. At least according to information I was able to find on the Internet weight gain is not a common side effect for Vesicare. It can cause edema or water retention which can result in weight gain but I didn't find any mention of weight gain in general. However, the internet does not always list all the side effects a drug can cause.
