    Amitriptyline for Post-traumatic stress disorder; Depression

    I take Amitriptyline 75, initially it was 50. After stopping trimipramine, I fell into a severe depressive hole lasting months, the study suggests that Amitryptiline works best on all tricyclics in personality disorders and trauma disorders. So off to the doctor. I am relatively happy with it, the mood is much better than before. I only miss the sleep-inducing effect to this day, meanwhile I even take all the pills of the day at once – namely in the morning.

    Side effects: No side effects

    Amitriptyline for Depression

    Take Tafil for over 10 years (05, mg – 1.0 mg), was rather sporadic until a year ago and sometimes could get along for a few days. When my mother died a year ago, the anxiety and depression became worse, since then I take it daily, the amount is not higher (0.5mg – 1.0mg). I walk on the treadmill almost every day for at least 1 hour, which is also very helpful. I often feel tired and dizzy, whether it is side effects or the disease itself I can not say.

    Side effects: Dependence

    Take Tafil0.5 mg – 1.00 mg for years, but sporadically until c.a one year ago. Could sometimes do without a few days. Ever since my mother died a year ago, I actually take it every day. the amount has not increased, but I just take it more often. I can not say about side effects, because I do not know, it’s the illness or side effects.

    Side effects: Dependence

    Amitriptyline for A headache; Depression

    I took the amitriptyline for about 1 month. I switched from sertraline to amitriptyline. I am very tired at 50 mg and not really awake, in the morning I should take then 25 mg = 75 mg / day. If you already drive weakness has, it is difficult to get fit and become and stay. Now we try in the evening 50 mg amitriptyline retard and in the morning 50 mg sertraline. Sertraline is more drive-promoting. Promethazine I should take only when needed, but this is not necessary because I am sleeping very well from the amitriptyline. The promethazine has left in the effect and should have been steadily increased in order not to lose the effect , So I feel that. Unfortunately, I have increased from the meds and do not dare to drive a car anymore. Since the amitriptyline still does not help as it should, now the sustained release of it has been prescribed, which slows the release of the drug to the body. But about it I do not really notice anything and will definitely get another medication soon and can almost open a pharmacy and if that helps, the constant change of medis is also not good for the body. Concomitant symptoms of the drug amitriptyline: hearing voices, fatigue / impotence, weight gain, furry taste in the mouth, not driving with the car, pain, nausea, vomiting, digestive problems 24.11.09: that does not stop with the vomiting and diarrhea, headaches are not synonymous away.I probably can not tolerate amytriptilin. Let’s see what the Institute Outpatient Center is doing now. I’ll probably get another drug, duloxetine or again sertraline with promethazine and back to the neurologist for the headache. The question I’m asking now is the transition from amytriptiline to duloxetine if that’s so easy? Will also let my liver values check. Come before me, like a guinea pig. 2.12.09: From tomorrow I start with the Cymbalta (active substance duloxetine) 30 mg in the morning, instead of sertraline and amytriptiline. Promethazine for the night.

    Amitriptyline for Fibromyalgia; Depression

    I got amitriptyline for my depressive episode and pain therapy at the same time. In small doses, this antidepressant should relieve my pain symptoms and at the same time bring in its mood-enhancing effect. After a short time, I noticed improvement. My pain was getting better, but still very strong. But my mood improved. I was not so aggressive anymore, not so sad anymore, not so self-pitying anymore and sometimes even feeling like going outside after weeks and months of hiding in the house … But the side effects were already extreme. Although in the leaflet weight gain was indicated as an adverse reaction, I continued to decline. I no longer had an appetite, often vomited and had constipation problems. Fatigue and exhaustion were the order of the day. Sometimes I could sleep through 10 hours at a stretch, but not at night! In general, I would recommend the drug but! I only used it because I got a drug that was better tolerated and had fewer side effects

    Amitriptyline for Migraine; Sleep disorders; Depression

    The drug has hit me very well in my sleep disorders and as a migraine prophylaxis after a good 2 weeks, but I have to say, only when my doctor transferred me to the 25 retard, from which I take to night 2, am. From the film-coated tablets I had a terrible metallic taste in my mouth after about 1 week and the dry mouth was also very bad. For revenue of retardtabl. I do not have that anymore. The only terrible thing is the steady weight gain that I do not get controlled !!

    I had to stop taking Amitriptyline with that of Dopduravorher I had the levodop in the same strength as this one, because the wrorge partly worsened, affects the effect that should be achieved, according to the doctor, on the other hand, the side effects. Novalinsulfone, I only take when the pain is unbearable, but they beat me regularly after taking to bed, I take omeprazole longer than the other drugs. Due to my illness history, some herniated discs and already two surgeries, at the time I took Tramal and Tramundin for the pain, my stomach is quite attacked and has not recovered, if I do not take it I’ll be back a day later strong heartburn. in the current composition I have no itchy skin except for the arms and legs.

    Amitriptyline for Sleep disorders; Depression

    I got amitriptiline because I did not tolerate another drug so well. Constantly had stomach upset and was tired all day. The stomach discomfort since then I am now Amitriptilin subsided. However, every day I have headaches that always occur in between times. A little longer and sometimes shorter. In any case extremely unpleasant. Then there are still vertigo attacks. I always take the tablets before going to sleep. Despite the fact that I’ve been taking them for a while now, I’m not getting very tired of it. I can not sleep with it and sleep through a long time. In the morning I feel like driven by a bus. Have the feeling that my head does not fit through the door. The tiredness runs through the whole day. My family doctor said that everything was normal. However, I feel limited. In the household, in private life (no desire to nothing) and especially bad at work. I do not have a mood-whitening effect. It gets worse because of the side effects.

    Side effects: Stomach pain; Dizziness; Fatigue

    Amitriptyline for Depression

    Amitriptyline was prescribed for suspected depression. When I took the drug for the first few weeks, I did not notice any effect, but instead it blew me completely a few hours after taking it. It is therefore advisable to take the drug initially only in the evening, so that one sleeps, while the side effects would occur. My doctor recommended that I take a tablet early after 3 weeks. Since I’m suffering from chronic fatigue anyway, I let that be after a few tries as it increased my fatigue. Nevertheless, it came to a slight mood-enhancing effect and made me with evening intake not the next day tired. The sedating side effect decreased quite abruptly. After a few weeks, no side effects were noticeable.

    Side effects: Daytime tiredness; Fatigue

    Amitriptyline for Sleep disorders; Depression

    I took the drug for 6 years, I should take it in the evening before going to sleep, so that I can sleep … I still could not sleep in and certainly not … But my doctor was convinced of the drug and there Familiar with a doctor, I took it … I could have taken valerian, would have probably come out the same … The side effects have been mainly weight gain, morning sluggishness and inner restlessness throughout the day heard … One Half a year after I started doing it, I gained 10kg … Due to the sluggishness, I could not follow my studies anymore and finally had to quit … I would never take it again and advise against it ….

    Amitriptyline for Depression

    Because of a restless depression I got mirtazepin, 2mg 15mg after that 30mg. They get very tired very quickly, then I got the side effect of restless legs. Unfortunately the tablets strengthened my depression, I was very irritable, at times aggressive. They were deposed and me got amitriptilin 2x25mg. The fatigue is noticeable about one hour after the intake, dizziness when getting up and slight hangover the next day. On the 5th day of intake I got tachycardia, at rest around 120 / min and after exercise the pulse went up to 145 !!! ECG was inconspicuous, my psychiatrist then halved the dose. From today I take only 12.5 mg for 5 days, then slowly increase the dose. But I think that these are the right tablets for me. I am doing better despite the tachycardia!

    Amitriptyline for Sleep disorders; Depression

    Haldol and Risperidon … Hellendinger! But well … They work differently for each … In Haldol I suffered from painful gaze spasms, extrapyramidal movement disorders, mild tremors in the arms and legs and after weaning, a nearly 5 months persisting insomnia, only by diazepane intravenously was suspended for just 4 hours. Risperdal had similar side effects … tremor and uneasiness or something … Both drugs made me helpless and desperate! Amitriptyline made little mention of it … The drive got better … However, it caused a mania and confusion … And Seroquel … Works okay, but even at a low dosage of 100-0-100 it has strange emotional deafness caused! Good that I do not take all these fucking things anymore …..

    Side effects: Confusion; Insomnia
