Amitriptyline - how much weight does a person gain from this pill?

Answers (1)

Depends on the person. Some people end up gaining a lot of weight and then some people don't gain any. I think it depends on how closely you watch your diet (this is based on observation of people that have been on it) to a certain extent.
