    Amitriptyline for Heart rhythm disturbances

    I have been in anxiety for 30 years. Since I take the drug (15 drops daily) have improved my anxiety. Also my sad moods have improved, can also fall asleep very well. Side effect: burning and bursting of the tongue, Belzig, often dizziness after taking medication, sometimes drowsiness. Tip: take medication in conjunction with apple juice Relieves the Belzige feeling. The drops with a little apple spritzer and drink, then rinse again with apple spritzer. So it works for me. Best regards Marion

    Amitriptyline for Pain (back)

    Since I got this stuff, (psychologists), I feel no better. I would rather say the opposite. An internal tremor and dizziness, stomach upset, dry mouth and a pathetic taste have come to it. In addition, you can not just settle it as you have taken it.

    Side effects: Dizziness; Mouth dryness

    Amitriptyline for Sleep disorders; Depression

    I got amitriptiline because I did not tolerate another drug so well. Constantly had stomach upset and was tired all day. The stomach discomfort since then I am now Amitriptilin subsided. However, every day I have headaches that always occur in between times. A little longer and sometimes shorter. In any case extremely unpleasant. Then there are still vertigo attacks. I always take the tablets before going to sleep. Despite the fact that I’ve been taking them for a while now, I’m not getting very tired of it. I can not sleep with it and sleep through a long time. In the morning I feel like driven by a bus. Have the feeling that my head does not fit through the door. The tiredness runs through the whole day. My family doctor said that everything was normal. However, I feel limited. In the household, in private life (no desire to nothing) and especially bad at work. I do not have a mood-whitening effect. It gets worse because of the side effects.

    Side effects: Stomach pain; Dizziness; Fatigue

    For almost 8 years I have had severe stomach pains and nausea almost daily (especially in the morning). Now I take this medication for 2 months and it has improved a lot. I’ll take it even longer, but I’m surprised it (unlike all other things) has already made an improvement. I think I tolerate it well, although from time to time dizziness occurs, my nose is often clogged and I have gained some weight (which may also be because I finally enjoy the food again).

    Amitriptyline for Depression

    Because of a restless depression I got mirtazepin, 2mg 15mg after that 30mg. They get very tired very quickly, then I got the side effect of restless legs. Unfortunately the tablets strengthened my depression, I was very irritable, at times aggressive. They were deposed and me got amitriptilin 2x25mg. The fatigue is noticeable about one hour after the intake, dizziness when getting up and slight hangover the next day. On the 5th day of intake I got tachycardia, at rest around 120 / min and after exercise the pulse went up to 145 !!! ECG was inconspicuous, my psychiatrist then halved the dose. From today I take only 12.5 mg for 5 days, then slowly increase the dose. But I think that these are the right tablets for me. I am doing better despite the tachycardia!

    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 A headache

    Heavier headache than before, extreme rash, nausea, dizziness, insomnia, irritability. I have noticed the side effects of the drug, in itself it did not work. Had to stop the intake after a good 3 weeks, because the side effects got worse and worse.

    Amitriptyline for Neuralgia

    Lyrica, an antidepressant, I have taken about 2.5 years against the pain of neuralgia. In the adjustment phase I had dizziness, nausea and strong tiredness, which then passed after about 3 months. Then I had to constantly increase the dose because the effect was no longer sufficient. After 2 years and 3 months I had abruptly about 50% of the listed side effects, which were mentioned in the leaflet. The side effects that have burdened me the worst were the very strong aggressiveness (I’ve done quite a bit of insurgency because of vain reasons and therefore made several friendships almost broken) and the constant strong nosebleeds, sometimes I have a cup filling (capacity about 250 ml ) lost in a single nosebleed. And if you do that several times a day, it weakens a lot. The Lyrica then, especially because of the nose bleeding, discontinued from one day to the next, the first week did not happen, but the 2nd and 3rd week I had severe whole-body pain. So, when settle, then I recommend, then gradually and not abrupt. And then, for the purpose of Lyrica at Wikipedia, I came across the following: It says that pregabalin (the active ingredient of Lyrica) is harmful to the health and also has a CORROSIVE effect. Hello? Doctors prescribe that and it’s approved by the drug agency? Do they want to see us healthy or do they just want to profit? I think rather that the profit would like to make, because a 100er box per 100mg per capsule costs the health insurance each time 181,18 euro. I do not want to counter the drug, I just want to clear it up. (In the case of gabapentin, of which I took only 1 capsule, since this medication has been completely knocked out of my pimples for more than 24 hours, it behaves similarly to the harmful effect.) Regarding the tilidine and tramadol I can say that this Medicines work very well with me and are also very well tolerated, so with the two I have no side effects. To the drug amitryptillin, which is indeed an antidepressant, I have also been tentatively prescribed for the pain of neuralgia. However, I have taken only one tablet in total, then I got quite a hallucination shortly after taking. By the way, since then, I reject any antidepressants because the tricyclic antidepressants (which include the amitriptyline) have the same mechanism of action and thus can lead to the same side effects and I may not take MAO inhibitors due to my asthma medication.

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
