Weight gain
raggins posted:
My doctor put me on Amitriptyline for depression, gradually going up to 200 Mg at bed time over 21/2 months time. I have gained 30 pounds. This is not acceptable for me. I do not have an appointment to see the doctor for another month. I am very worried to see how much more weight I am going to gain. Right now I am over 165 pounds. Pretty big change from 135. Does anyone have any suggestions to slow down the weight gain other than starving my self?
