    Wanted to see if anyone has gained weight with this. In a week I've gained 5 pounds, and I've been feeling a little better so I've been more active.

    I've already had problems with weight, and I liked where I was at.

    Thanks!

    I've been taking it for years, 50 mg. a night. I have gained weight but not due to the trazodone. If I go off the trazodone I lose about 3 pounds of water weight quickly, so there is a slight gain from that. Otherwise, I blame my gradual weight gain on eating a little too much for a long period of time and being inactive. I have been 10 pounds thinner while on the trazodone, so I know I can lose weight while on it.

    Now elavil was a different story! I kept on gaining weight consistently every week. That's why I switched to trazodone.

    Elavil is famous for weight gain. Trazodone not so much. But everyone processes drugs differently.

    Thanks for the responses. I'm hoping it's temporary water weight gain but doubt it.
