Hi KMD330, welcome to Healing Well, glad you have found us. I am on amitriptyline now, but only 50mg per day. This has taken the edge off my pain but trying to go higher leaves me drunk!! lol. So I have gone back to propranalol as well - its not perfect but better than before - have put on a lot of weight with propranalol over the years!!!

I am waiting to see a Neuro who specialises in Headache with the hope that he can find a way forward for me. To get back to the matter in hand, I have not noticed any weight gain since being on the ami, but maybe I am on too lower dose dunno! Take care Ann.

Hi guys and dolls!
I took Ami. as well...gained a TON! I ended up taking a "newer" version of the same antidepressant and had less weight gain...I guess some doc's don't feel its a big deal if we end up looking like beached
I guess if they were the ones taking the meds they might think to mention that. Now I research medications thoroughly before I swallow any kind of pills!!! ha ha. (I should have done that all along, but that was when I was much younger and trusted what they were giving me.) Besides that...isn't there a thought about antidepressants and gaining tons of weight...hmm...we make these people pack on tons of weight...won't they be depressed about that too?!?!? nono   Oh well, maybe that is just my theory?
Anyway...maybe I am too smart for my own good?
I am taking Wellbutrin now and no weight gain there...and it even made me stop smoking...(i looked at a cigarette and wanted to hurl!----that was before I knew it would even have that affect one me)
Just an interesting story

Having tried everything, the worst for gaining weight was about 80lbs on Depakote.  Now I'm on Cymbalta and I've lost 10lbs in ten days......WHOOO-HOOOOOO!!! tongue    I'm hoping it will help with the depression and migraine attacks, but the weight loss is worth it.
Just FYI,
