As I said in a earliear post, I am on Trimiphamine. I have got used to the med now, and has helped me to sleep at night. But I have to take the meds at least 4 hours before.
My problem is that I was told that it makes you put on weight.
Has anyone else experience with that? cry

I don't know about that one either, what is the brand name? If you ever want to check up on your meds, go to, there is even a place to read other peoples reviews. Interesting.
From what I have learned from a long time of taking these meds, and from reading here on the forum, they all can make you gain weight. If you are concerned, weigh yourself once a month, more often and you will go crazy, ha ha.
It would be wise to avoid things that are known obesity causers, like fast food, restaurants. Try not to use food for comfort, as I did, getting a spoon, the half gallon of ice cream, and going to it. I gained a lot of weight one summer doing that, and it has been very hard to get off. Also, if you do gain a little, don't develop an attitude like, I'm eating whatever I want because the medicine is MAKING me fat. Then it is not the med, it is you. Or me, what I am saying I have done :(
If you don't exercise now is the time to think about that, even taking a couple short walks around the block twice a day is good. Will help your metabolism and depression too.
It'll get better, make sure you are doing everything you can to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Are you referring to Trimipramine ? Trimipramine is a tricyclic antidepressant with sedative properties.  Weight gain or weight loss is a common side effect of this medications.

That's right Kitt. I didn't realize I had mispelled it. I was given this because it would help me to sleep.
