    Amitriptyline for Muscle tenseness

    sifrol 0018 mg only partially help, I still often have the tingling and those restless legs, walk around at night and have to move. Totally killed in the daytime, I wake up in the morning and am not able to do anything or concentrate until lunchtime. I realized that if I go a lot during the day then the night is over.

    Amitriptyline for Sleep disorders

    Due to a significant, chronic sleep disorder, I have o. g. Drug prescribed and taken for about 2 years, regularly, taken. Overall, the effectiveness is good for me, and I have developed no tolerance for this drug, I always take always consistent dose. However, that certainly depends on discipline and consistency. As far as the side effects are concerned, I have already seen a whole series, in particular the weight gain (15 kg / 2 years), which in any case depends on the medication intake. Long-term changes in diet, etc. are very difficult, because on the one hand, I was more hungry and on the other hand, even with changes in diet and physical activity very difficult to no weight loss. In addition, there is still a reduced performance and concentration capacity during the day, but not serious for me, but already noticeable. Then, of course, the risk of dependency, as with so many antidepressants and benzodiazepines. Also, I’m usually pretty tired after getting up in the morning, but that basically comes with me during the day.

    Amitriptyline for Migraine

    I generally have little side effect. Which is great! Especially since I was taking before about 2-5 days Mirgäne (including pre- and Nachphasen). On closer observation, I can say that I am more thirsty and a bit more hungry than before. Weight gain I can not judge, at least not 6 Kg in 2 weeks like another time wrote! The thirst is noticeable, but it does not matter, because I have drunk anyway too little and now just more will be remembered. Since I’m a big dreamer (in the truest sense of the word, when I’m a child with sleepwalking and still telling stories as a teenager, now with only memories of the morning or emotional upset), I now have the feeling of being better in the morning and having a better night’s sleep , I also take a low dose of 10mg. But I can take these too late, without getting stuck in bed in the morning. Very rarely I am unusually tired in the morning. This was much worse with migraine. I had since the first intake no significant seizure more!
