but for me, it's one of the few drugs that works, I gained a lot of weight by taking it every day, and my colestrol count skyrocketed, but in 45 minutes it converts a bad CH into restful sleep, my doctor put me on Noratriptyline claiming that I would not have the weight gain as with the amitriptylene, but with the Nora, I felt that my brain was a concrete block and suffered short term memory loss with it plus put on the weight, I went cold turkey for six months lost both the weight and the high colestrol count, it's a constant battle and that dry mouth never goes away, so do I take the pill or fight the pain of the cluster, a constant question. Another side effect is very cold feet, my son with Crohn's tried it in hopes that he would gain weight, it didn't help him at all and he was constantly cold
