Weight gain: Can be a side effect from any of these meds, but remeron (mirtazapine) causes more patients to gain more weight than the others, with amitriptyline also being more notorious for weight gain. This is not to say that remeron (mirtazapine) or amitriptyline causes weight gain in everyone or that the others won’t cause these side effects. Depression, and other meds, can also cause folks to have difficulty with weight gain.
