Trying to lose weight when meds make me gain
Hello, I'm new here.
Last year I was diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia and I was put on amitriptyline, which while it controls the pain somewhat, has the lovely side effect of weight gain.
Since then, I've been on a diet but I just keep losing and gaining the same 6lbs no matter how hard I try.
Also, it makes me really sleepy and lethargic so I'm not feeling inclined to exercise.
Has anyone successfully lost weight on similar medication?
