    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 Morbus sudeck

    Amitriptyline was given to me as part of the treatment of Sudeck’s disease in combination with Arcoxia and Calcitonin. This adds to the already daily intake of Beloc Zok, SimvaHexal and Nexium mups. At intervals of about 2 hours in the evening, I took one tab each, for a total of 2 tablets before going to bed and woke up at night with severe heart problems and an extreme feeling of pressure in the torax area, had shortness of breath and felt extremely bad. The complaints were so severe that I was about to call an ambulance. The next morning, I consulted with my attending physician because I did not know which of the medications triggered the symptoms. The doctor typed amitriptyline, which I then discontinued immediately. The complaints did not occur then.
