    Amitriptyline for Arthrosis; Fibromyalgia

    The diagnosis of fibromyalgia came to my other illnesses 3 weeks ago, and with it the drug amitriptyline. My doctor treating me for the other diseases does not think either of the fibromyalgia or of the drug (he is a surgeon), he says, which intensifies antidepressants I do not feel that way. The infusions and the injections I get in the change every 2 days and just as long holds its effect. Only the tilidine I need right now. Not. The main effect that the extra amitritylin has on me is an infinite tiredness, which my doctor claims could not be, because anti-depressants would make it brightening. Nothing lightens up, but at least I can sleep painless … and that all the time …. oh yes, I can always eat, if I’m not too tired …

    Side effects: Appetite increase; Fatigue

    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 Fibromyalgia

    Through research here in the network and exchange with those affected, I harbored the suspicion of fibromyalgia. Unfortunately, my family doctor is one of the species that calls this disease non-existent. On my own I went to a rheumatologist, who was also well versed in this area and the suspected diagnosis of fibromyalgia. This has since been confirmed by my pain therapist, an anesthesiologist. However, she considers fibromyalgia just another name for a chronic pain syndrome. I am currently treating her with amitriptyline. First, 10 mg 3 times a day. This had very good effects on the pain, in the initial phase, however, as side effects severe fatigue and depression. The depression subsided on its own, the tiredness remained. I switched to Amitryptiline 25 mg retard once a day to sleep in the evening. Unfortunately, the effect on the pain subsided and the tiredness remained. Now I try 2 x daily Amitryptilin 10 mg and at night the delayed-release tablets with 25 mg. Unfortunately, the effect on the pain is not as good as it was at the beginning, the permanent fatigue makes it difficult for me. I’m lying in bed for at least 12 hours and still feel like being wheeled. At work is so far out of the question, which puts a lot of mental stress on me, because I have fears of the future.

    Side effects: Exhaustion; Fatigue

    Amitriptyline for Fibromyalgia

    I’ve been taking amitriptyline (antidepressants) for 8 months, which is used to relieve pain in my illness. For several weeks now, I have been breathing pauses at night, suddenly wake up, open my eyes and gasp like a fish.

    Amitriptyline for Fibromyalgia

    For more than 2 years now I am taking Amitriptyline (Amineurin25). My neurologist prescribed it for pain relief because of my fibromyalgia. I could not tell a real difference in the pain sensation (but you never know how it would be without it now). On the advice of the doctor, I had increased the dosage, but it was also too tired in the daytime, bland, impotent, so I returned to the 25 mg. Negative: – As a sleep aid Amintriptyline now no longer fulfills its purpose, I have again great sleep problems. – The permanent dry mouth (the eyes are dry, so it is not surprising that you can tolerate contact lenses worse) and disturb the bitter taste. – And of course the weight gain – no idea what is at the expense of Medikamnets and what my feeding attacks – but at least I managed last year to massively lose weight, but unfortunately I have the weight now back on it. Positive: – Probably due to amitriptyline, I have almost no allergy symptoms (hay fever, nut allergy). – My ability to concentrate as well as my stress capacity at work have improved. That’s why I intend to continue taking the drug while I’m still working (4 years).
