I am currently taking 10mg of Trepeline at night and 300mg of Epleptin 3 times a day due to severe pain in my back and spasms in through out my body. I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis about 7 years ago but it is now in remission. Do these tablets cause weight gain?

Trepeline contains the active ingredient Amitryptiline, which is a tricyclic antidepressant that the Epleptin contains the active ingredient Gabapentin, which is an anticonvulsant, though both of these have been shown to help with various types of nerve pain, such as yours.

And yes, they can both cause weight gain as side effects.

Have you gained a lot, or just a small amount?

I was recently given Epleptin 300 to take by the Neuro surgeon. However 18 month ago I had a Diverticulitis operation, which is the removal of part of intestine due to small baloons forming on it which contain particles of food. In my case I lost control of my bowel movement - which has been corrected as a result of the operation. However, since the op I have been severly constipated and need to take opening medicine to have bowel movement.
Now my question... does epleptin, as do many other pain killers promote constipation?
I am looking forward to receiving a reply to this and will not take Epleptin before I know the effect of it on my stomach.
Thank you
Hans
