Tired all the time, no focus, no concentration, "foggy brain", weight gain, insomnia. No benefit whatsoever. Depression is terrible. Drug should be taken off the market. This is a very addictive drug in terms of trying to wean off of it.

Aside from some swelling in my feet and ankles and a weight gain of about ten pounds, I had no side effects. It was a miracle drug for me.

Terrible drug. It caused me to gain a lot of weight. Need to change to another medication. Both amitryptiline and lyrics have horrible side effects.
