In brief: Sure

It's definitely possible to lose weight even on a tricyclic, though it may be more difficult.
Eat a healthy diet high in vegetables, fruit and fiber from whole grains and legumes. Limit/cut out all refined carbs (white flour and sugar). Exercise for 30 - 60 minutes 5 -6 days a week.

In brief: Definitely!!!

May be slower, but higher lean proteins, 5-6 small meals a day, 80+ oz water and moderate increase in interval cardio nd resistance training should work just as well !
