> Which one is better concerning weight gain.

I agree that neither is good. But have you tried a low dose of doxepin? I was on 10mg for sleep and it worked to keep me asleep (though I still was fatigued, due to CFS and Fibromyalgia; don't get good quality delta sleep). Appetite was hearty on 10mg doxepin, though this may be due to a dysregulated HPA axis and not so much the doxepin. It's better to anticipate the weight gain and take measure to mitigate it through calorie counting, support, exercise, and learning to fill up on vegetables/fiber before meals.

I may go back to 10mg doxepin for sleep as low dose mirtazapine is not working as I hoped. Very tired on it and the appetite issue. Lock the pantry doors at dinnertime, folks! LOL. We'll see in the coming weeks.
