if anyone can give me an answer asap i would be very grateful,seeing Dr tomorrow,for the last week I was swapped to 225mg amitriptylin,15mg reminol and 12mg diazepan,the side effect of reminol is weight gain again,so need to ask to change the reminol to something else, am needing something that is anti-depressant-sleeper but without weight-gain side effect,thanks for any help,thanks in advance
Hi, are you using the amitriptyline for depression, or insomnia, or pain? Or a combination? If it is for depression, Citalopram are really good (for me anyway), but they take quite a while to work, they can make you feel worse before you feel better. But I haven't experienced weight gain with them.
If you take the amitriptyline for insomnia, xanax are a great alternative, but are addictive, so be careful (no weight gain)! If they are for pain, there are a hundred alternatives your Dr can prescribe (unless you've tried loads already?). I hope you find an alternative that works for you!
