Welcome to Healing Well. I think that you will find this a very pleasant place to come to. Everybody here is so kind and considerate.
The only other medications that aren't suppose to cause weight gain that I know of are effexor, wellbutrin and topomax. I am sure that there are others and I am not so sure about
effexor because there have been people who have complained about
the weight gain.
But as you said, our metabolism changes as we get older and that could be a part of it. I was your age when I started gaining weight but I also have fibromyalgia and am not as active as I use to be. So I guess a lot of different things can play a factor.
Let us know what your doctor says and keep on posting.
