Can Amlodipine cause weight gain?

Is weight gain a side effect of Amlodipine?

While it’s highly effective, Amlodipine also has many side effects. These include dizziness, headaches, swelling and stomach pain. A rare side effect of Amlodipine is weight gain. Therefore the risk is low. Many factors that may increase your risk of high blood pressure, i.e. high-calorie diet, may contribute to increased weight gain when taking Amlodipine. If you feel Amlodipine is causing you to gain weight, you may want to look into alternative blood pressure medication.
