Hi all. My psychiatrist wants to start me on Amitriptyline for chronic depression and psychosis, next time I see her. She wanted to start me on it last week, but I told her I wanted to research the drug first - which is what I always do.
I'm worried about the side effects I may experience as I seem quite sensitive to medication. I'm very worried about gaining weight. I have an eating disorder, anxiety and OCD... And a lot of my depression is based around how I look and perceive myself.
I assume my psychiatrist start me on a low dose and build it up gradually. What can I expect?
Thank you for any advice
