Clonidine and weight gain?

My consultant is talking about putting me on Clonidine, and being a steroid based drug does this mean everyone will put on weight?
I can't have beta blockers as I also have asthma, so I realise my options are limited, but I really can't cope with weight gain, mentally or physically.

Any advice would be helpful as I'm totally in the dark as far as high BP goes.

I have not had any weight gain and have not heard about that problem in the research I did.
