      Hey guys,

      I have a problem! I have been on Mirt for 1 year now and it really helped me!
      Feel great T lower but the weight gain is really a problem for me. Now the doc wants me to try Amitriptyline.
      I tried it for one night and it made me fell panic and i could not sleep. Thus i guess resulting in higher T
      But that might just be a mental thing.

      Against their wishes i restarted Mirt and feeling better maybe because i get a better sleep on it.

      Now they was me to give Ami another go because they say it is better for me i just need to get trough the fist 2 weeks or so.

      I was just wondering if there is anyone that made the switch and if they benefit from it.

      Eat less than is your basal metabolic rate and you will lose weight.

      You eat too much. Nothing to do with medications...
