I am a Weight Watcher and very successful. I do not wish to ruin all my hard work if this med adds lbs. Have not tried it yet due to that main concern. Suffering from IBS (both D and C), bloating, gas, stomach pain, etc. This was just presc. by my new gastro.
Good morning. From my researching most people do have a weight gain. I have also seen Enbrel that is used to treat arthritis work for IBS. Just be a great advocate for yourself. No one knows you more then you. If you don't agree with your new dr try a second opinion. Good luck.
I have been on this dosage for almost 3 weeks and have gained 15 lbs. It works great for my headaches but I never have energy. I just want to sit on my couch and do nothing all day but sleep! I'm definitely going to see if my doctor can find me another route to take!
I've only been on amitriptyline 4 months on 25mg Every night which it's working fab for ibs however I've gained nearly half a stone! I watch my weight and exercise and eat really well so it's very deflating I was wondering if it's q common side effects myself x
