Default Weight Gain & Hair Loss

Soon after I was diagnosed with type II, I was put on Actos (15mg) for 5 years and started gaining some weight, talked to my doctor and he put me on Avandia (4mg), a year ago. I have gained more weight and have swelling on my face. I can't seem to lose weight, I excersize regularly and watch my diet. I have also lost lot of hair, I'm almost going bald. Does anyone have similar experience?
