I have been on Amitritylins for about 5 years now (50mg) for a number of issues, mostly sleep disorder and anxiety. I have found it wonderful. It is fast acting and apart from the few side-effects experienced by most patients in this forum (dry mouth, constipation, occasional tachycardia), it has alleviated nost of my symptoms. However, one side effect I cannot live with any more is the enormous weight gain, nearly 10 kilos if 5 years.
This is mainly due to a great increase in appetite. I have the urge to eat every 2 to 3 hours. Now that's depressing in itself. Has anyone experienced that problem? If so, is there a solution -apart from coming off Amitriptyline?
