    Amitriptyline for Sleep disorders

    I have very bad sleep problems. At best it is a light doze, where I have the same nightmares. Rather, I do not sleep at all and am 30 min. wide awake after bedtime. My therapist then prescribed Amitriptyline 50 mg, 1 tablet about 2-3 hours before going to bed. That did not help at all. Then I should go to a neurologist. He said max. 1 hour before going to bed I should take the amitriptyline. In addition, he then zolpidem prescribed me, which I should also take directly before lying down. Have it then for a few days at max. 2 hours sleep brought. Then everything was over again. 2 days ago I felt a real greed to take more of the stuff. I did not do that. Then tried to reach my therapist or my neurologist, both have a practice leave. I have anxiety and panic attacks, I’m often cold, I have cramps, sheer hunger for something sweet. Nobody can tell me something about this combination. I’m totally helpless and do not know what to do. Maybe this one reads here and can help. I can not live soon

    Amitriptyline for Sleep disorders

    Amitriptyline by the doctor for insomnia (150mg evening) and underweight get. Sleep disorders have improved a bit (now about 4 hours sleep per day), weight gain has unfortunately not occurred despite increased appetite. Side effects are significant, especially at night, tachycardia, nightmares and depression. Furthermore, no particularly hard erections are possible and the desire for pleasure has fallen sharply during sex and masturbation. Achieving an orgasm is greatly delayed even in masturbation (so from about 45 min.), But mostly not possible because the erection goes back before. Dry mouth and constantly disgusting coating and taste in the mouth are not particularly bad, but still disturb. Benefit and harm of the drug are overall in a bad relation.

    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
