was recently prescribed amitripyline for depression. however, upon reading reviews I was discouraged to read how many others who have used this drug have encountered signficant weight gain. can you elaborate on this? is the weight gain a result of hunger increase or metabolic changes? thank you.

Note: I am a bulimic attempting recovery so I can't be on a drug that encourages binge eating or unanticipated weight gain.
