Weight gain and amitriptyline

I am 20 years old and have be prescribed 25mg amitriptyline to help me sleep, as I have been having difficulty sleeping for years. I have read online that anti-depressants such as amitriptyline cause significant weight gain. I am a division 1 track athlete and any weight gain would be hurt my running.

What are the chances of weight gain if I take 25 milligrams a night? I currently weight 185

Hi, Amitriptyline could make you groggy and sluggish the next day. My doc says to just fight that feeling and keep as active as possible until your body adjusts to this side effect. Continue to follow a healthy diet and you shouldn't gain weight. If you do my understanding is to report that to your doctor.
