Are you using them for sleep or as an antidepressant?

If you need a tricyclic antidepresant fir depression, try nortriptyline first.

If you're using them for sleep, then doxepin and amitriptyline are both equaly bad, the sedative effect is closely linked to the weight gain, so while 25mg of of doxepin is equal to 50mg of amitriptyline for sedation, its also about equal in weight gain.

If using it for sleep, Seroquel might be a better option, as it has a shorter half life, so by the time you wake up, the appetite stimulating effect has largely worn off, and you dont eat in your sleep.
