    I was prescribed amitriptyline because of severe vulvar pain and only took about three weeks because of itching. It must be said that I am allergic and neurodermatitis. It has itchy, especially the body parts that have ever been affected by atopic dermatitis (actually, but not for a long time). The explanation for the itching, which immediately became better after the discontinuation of the drug, probably lies in the liberation of histamines, which have increased my probably already high levels of histamine even more. Ami is not combinable well with antihistamines (contraindication) and therefore unsuitable for me in the long run. Other side effects included morning tiredness, diarrhea and numbness in the arms.

    Amitriptyline for Sleep disorders

    My doctor prescribed amitriptyline as a light sleep aid. I took a tablet of 25 mg the first day around 17h. Instead of getting tired, I was stupid. The preparation took from me the last shoots that I still had available. So I imagine the condition of the patients in one flew over the cuckoo’s nest after administration of their daily dose of tablets. For someone who is lethargic by birth and slow in thinking and can not fall asleep, this is certainly not a bad drug. Rarely got a worse prescription prescribed. Oh yes, they diagnosed an irritable bowel with me. Hoping that amitriptyline would help, I even took it the next day, half a tablet. And instead of taking the mushy chair, today I even had diarrhea. So bad, but honest. I hereby warn everyone to take this medicine.

    Amitriptyline for A headache; Sleep disorders

    I have been taking Elontril 150 mg, fluanxole, amitriptiline for 8 days now. Have previously taken paroxetine, since I suffer from the age of 18 years of depression. I was fine with that, but I had very strong diarrhea and a loss of libido! Now I have no more diarrhea, but a lot of other side effects, and I push this on Elontril: dry mouth, sleep problems, dizziness, drowsiness (depersonalization), head pressure, pressure in the chest …! My mood is good, but the side effects kill me! My question: do the side effects stop after a few days? Should I hold out or prefer to sell? Thank you for the answer!

    Amitriptyline for Disc prolapse

    Took the drug regularly once a day. Initially, a whole reduced to a half after some time – depending on the complaint. At present, only a quarter, if by straining the lumbar spine or too much sitting again, the nerve canal is narrowed and this leads to strong fasciculate symptoms and then also to sudden convulsions – especially in sleep. On the advice of a new doctor for about 4 months on Limptar switched. It is free of prescription and helps me against the calf cramps. If the fasciculative symptoms are very severe, I reluctantly (or not) resort to amitriptyline. Ungern, as gradually strange side effects / symptoms were associated with the intake: 1. Urine flow and strength of the urine stream decreases to a great extent. The complete emptying of the bladder is possible only with much patience and time. 2. Severe diarrhea – not at all at the beginning but then regularly. In the morning mostly after getting up completely normal, but then about 15 minutes after breakfast very strong intestinal activity and quite heavy toilet urgency, which does not allow any delay. Discharge urge is also very strong during the session. 3. Finger and toe nails grow very irregularly and slightly deformed. Upon discontinuation of the drug, the change in growth gradually becomes visible, as the regrowth of the nails under the drug, e.g. on the big toes looks significantly changed (wavy brittle form), as the current regrowth without drug the smooth, as it was to have taken without ever amitriptyline, looks. 3.Unregularly occurring numbness effects in the fingertips, nose, lips, ears and genital area, in the lower part of the scrotum and the penis on the glans tip. 4. Increasing herpes in the nasal mucosa (leathery and very difficult to remove poplar formation) open small wounds in the lower mucosal area. 5. After about one year of use, deafness occurs on the upper lip, with no more or very tedious healing vertical tear (sometimes several adjacent) on this, on. Also, a herpes formation is felt in these cracks. Unfortunately herpes remedies failed ALL only Soventol HC (multiple times as allowed). 6. Almost every day irritable stomach syndrome meisst at the end of the esophagus or stomach entrance. Personally, I assume that not only the synapses but also fine nerve endings are inhibited by amitriptyline in the flow of information. Since I only provide amitriptyline for emergencies, there has been no cracking and the nasal mucosa and also my stomach has calmed down. Only the diarrhea did not improve after months, whereupon I will consult a gastroenterologist these days.
