    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 Pain (chronic)

    Amitriptyline made the pain bearable and at night I was able to sleep well. Constipation occurred immediately and weight gain after a few weeks. I am assuming that Ami is now already 4 years old, about half a year after receipt started my hair loss. I went to the doctor and he said it could not be from the Ami. Zig investigations have revealed nothing. Had beautiful natural curls, now I have hardly any hair and the curls you see almost nothing at all. Am super unhappy about it. I dropped off the Ami four days ago and I’m curious how it affects my hair.

    Amitriptyline for Arthrosis; Pain (acute); Depression

    Because of my severe pain, I take Oxicodon 20 mg daily and then Oxicodone 20 mg every morning and evening. In the beginning I was thrilled because my pain was almost gone. I did not know that for years. After 1 year I had to increase to 40mg daily, as the pain came back. I know that without this medication, I could not stand my pain anymore, but meanwhile I have to struggle with the side effects. In addition to heavy constipation, tiredness, irritability, stomach problems and very strong sweats, I can concentrate very badly. Most of all, I struggle with strong withdrawal symptoms if I do not take Oxicodon punctually.

A diagnosis of this pain was made only reluctantly by the attending physicians. X-ray thorax and ECG were without findings, which is why I was told that this pain probably part of my chron. Pain syndrome or my thoughts would be responsible. However, it was not taken into account that the pain was only 3 weeks earlier and still considered to be acute. Also, information, such as the chance diagnosis of a female doctor who raised a status for the pensioner and, through a pressure test, the diaphragm as responsible for the pain in the thorax, as well as the information of my physiotherapist, that a strong hardening / Distortion is ignored. It was also explained to me that I had been treated with the existing medication (Lyrika 150mg 1-0-1 and Palexia 200mg 1-0-1) and that you could not give any more painkillers. (However, this can not be correct because I took Palexia solution up to 2x5ml as a bolus for pain attacks just a few months earlier.) This was discontinued only on my initiative, because I saw myself impaired in my cognitive abilities) Nevertheless, one sat down Amitriptyline 25mg 1-0-1 as a painkiller. A strange comment from a nurse and her own research brought two things to light. First: Amitriptyline is not a painkiller, but antidepressants and second: The doctor has lied to me cheekily. From the beginning he was full of prejudices about the pain I felt and made my psyche responsible. He even went so far as to say that he was sorry for my family doctor because he needed to keep treating me. But only half a year before had a psychological report, which I needed for my gastric bypass, my psyche certified perfect health, and although I have been so for 3.5 years with the pain of the deg. Had to fight WS syndrome! The first (side) effect: I was tired! I could have fallen asleep standing around the clock! I mean, I could have been happy, before that night I only got 2-4 hours of sleep a night because of the pain, now I could sleep much longer. However, I had to pay for this sleep a much too high price, because the pain after getting up were thus many times worse, because just lying, prepares me, over time, the greatest pain. But I was there because of the acute pain in the chest (and the stomach problem) and not because of the deg. WS syndrome! In the hope that my pain would be reduced, I took the drug, despite my dislike of psychotropic drugs and my belief that this pain had nothing to do with WS syndrome. The second incidental side effect – dry mouth – is very uncomfortable, but not really a problem. but rather a now constant and faithful companion who always teaches you to have a bottle of water with you. The pain-relieving effect was still missing. Since I also knew after my research that the onset of good 2 weeks after the start of treatment can only occur because the drug needs a mirror, I had egg

    Amitriptyline for Pain (chronic)

    After an operation on the sternum, I suffer from chronic pain. I started with the strongest Tilidin, Katadolon and Saroten. Unfortunately, this did not help against the pain at all. So I got Fentanylpflaster 50 micrograms, change every 2 days, otherwise on the 3rd day the strong pain is back completely. If necessary I take ibuprofen 600mg and tramadol and in the evening 1 saroten (amitriptyline). On most days, I tolerate the patches quite well. At first I had constipation, now only rarely. Among other things, I have sweats now and then, fatigue, but what is bearable, worse are the days when you have depressive mood swings and anxiety, but thank God not too often occur. I have not been able to drive until now, but I will start again soon. Of the other drugs I have no side effects. But I usually do not even notice the analgesic effect of ibuprofen. Side effects are summarized by fentanyl: sweating, constipation, fatigue, anxiety disorders and depressive mood swings
