    Anyone here had any luck with amitriptyline??

    I was prescribed 25mg amitriptyline two weeks ago for sleep and depression. It does help a lot with my sleep, but nothing for the depression so far. Just wondering if anyone has a experience with this drug. Have taken several other ads over time, but the side effects were overwhelming!! I know this is an old drug and wondering if some of the old drugs worked better than some of the new ones. I'm 73 and lost my wife of 25 yrs to cancer 16 yrs ago and been alone since. Any comments would be appreciated, thanks for reading.

    I gained a lot of weight on this med. . But I was on 150mg of this med. . Have you ever tried trazodone for sleep. It's an old antidepressant also. My husband take it. It works really well.
