Yes, it did in my case I put on 5lb in a week as soon as I changed to the alternative nortrypyiline I lost the weight also I don't get the sleepynes like amitryptililne. In the beginning I did feel lethargic in the morning but it's wearing off. Hope this helps you katie xx

hope it helps you. I wish I could loose some weight. maybe it is some of my other medication x

I am also on it and have found I have gained no weight I wish I could, I was given it to help me sleep as I suffer with chronic nerve pain.
