I have been put on amytripaline on addition to diclofenic and tramadol to help manage fibromyalgia and teitzes. Now, my symptoms are definitely more managable (not great, but better) BUT I am anorexic. I maintain a decent weight and bmi, but have frequent spirals. I've just had a severe one. I can normally get my weight back up slowly, but I have (for me) ballooned. I've put a lot on (more than I do normally) very, VERY quickly. I'm not even eating much more than I did at easter, and no crisps/sweets/chocolate, but I can't stop this weight gain. Its really distressing me and making me paranoid and anxious.

Did anyone else gain weight on this (last week I started taking 2 a night as prescribed) and is there any way to manage it?

No idea ? Could you maybe call your GP and see if there is something else you could try ?

Thank you! I will call. Ifthis is temporary, then I can cope because of the difference its made to my other issues.
