    Amitriptyline for Pain (chronic)

    Tired fatigue at the beginning. Absolutely slowly sneak in and take in the evening. In the first days, the tiredness pulled in until the next morning. Responsiveness was severely limited. After about a week it got better, for the next two weeks it looked like a tablet to fall asleep. After about a quarter of a year, no side effects were felt.

    Side effects: Fatigue

    Amitriptyline for Arthrosis; Fibromyalgia

    The diagnosis of fibromyalgia came to my other illnesses 3 weeks ago, and with it the drug amitriptyline. My doctor treating me for the other diseases does not think either of the fibromyalgia or of the drug (he is a surgeon), he says, which intensifies antidepressants I do not feel that way. The infusions and the injections I get in the change every 2 days and just as long holds its effect. Only the tilidine I need right now. Not. The main effect that the extra amitritylin has on me is an infinite tiredness, which my doctor claims could not be, because anti-depressants would make it brightening. Nothing lightens up, but at least I can sleep painless … and that all the time …. oh yes, I can always eat, if I’m not too tired …

    Side effects: Appetite increase; Fatigue

    Amitriptyline for Neuralgia; Pain (back)

    very forgetful, tired in the morning, gaining weight! These are the side effects of the two medications, but what are you doing to make the pain bearable? My feet burned so much that I seriously considered …. what should I do with my feet? Unfortunately, all medications containing amitriptyline are currently unavailable. I asked the companies and got the answer …… there is no drug to get, so we took the drug out completely. I still have some pills (get the Rectard), but I do not know how it goes without the tablets. Would be glad about experiences of you.

    Side effects: Increase in weight; Fatigue

    Amitriptyline for Trigeminal neuralgia

    In the summer of 2007 after an unsuccessful dental procedure I got a trigeminal neuralgia. It was treated with carbamazepine last year (1200mg / day). But unfortunately there was a habituation effect and I had pain despite the maximum dose. After then also a liver damage was determined, I have discontinued the drug with the agreement of the doctor. At some point, the pain subsided and passed. In August of this year then again the horror. From morning to night the worst pain again, I could not speak anymore, did not eat – it was fatal. Again, I went to the doctor and this time I was prescribed an antidepressant called Amitriptyline Neuraxpharm 25 Mg. It struck immediately, but had to dose to 2x25mg. I take them for about 30 days, get along well. The pain is not completely gone, but I can live with the pain that occurs. Side effects, however, are extreme dry mouth, fatigue and slight weight gain. But I can recommend the preparation for trigeminal neuralgia as an alternative. Also got gabapentin at the beginning of neuralgia, which has not struck. I hope that soon the story calms down and I can sell the pills.

    Amitriptyline for A headache; Depression

    I took the amitriptyline for about 1 month. I switched from sertraline to amitriptyline. I am very tired at 50 mg and not really awake, in the morning I should take then 25 mg = 75 mg / day. If you already drive weakness has, it is difficult to get fit and become and stay. Now we try in the evening 50 mg amitriptyline retard and in the morning 50 mg sertraline. Sertraline is more drive-promoting. Promethazine I should take only when needed, but this is not necessary because I am sleeping very well from the amitriptyline. The promethazine has left in the effect and should have been steadily increased in order not to lose the effect , So I feel that. Unfortunately, I have increased from the meds and do not dare to drive a car anymore. Since the amitriptyline still does not help as it should, now the sustained release of it has been prescribed, which slows the release of the drug to the body. But about it I do not really notice anything and will definitely get another medication soon and can almost open a pharmacy and if that helps, the constant change of medis is also not good for the body. Concomitant symptoms of the drug amitriptyline: hearing voices, fatigue / impotence, weight gain, furry taste in the mouth, not driving with the car, pain, nausea, vomiting, digestive problems 24.11.09: that does not stop with the vomiting and diarrhea, headaches are not synonymous away.I probably can not tolerate amytriptilin. Let’s see what the Institute Outpatient Center is doing now. I’ll probably get another drug, duloxetine or again sertraline with promethazine and back to the neurologist for the headache. The question I’m asking now is the transition from amytriptiline to duloxetine if that’s so easy? Will also let my liver values check. Come before me, like a guinea pig. 2.12.09: From tomorrow I start with the Cymbalta (active substance duloxetine) 30 mg in the morning, instead of sertraline and amytriptiline. Promethazine for the night.

    Amitriptyline for Fibromyalgia; Depression

    I got amitriptyline for my depressive episode and pain therapy at the same time. In small doses, this antidepressant should relieve my pain symptoms and at the same time bring in its mood-enhancing effect. After a short time, I noticed improvement. My pain was getting better, but still very strong. But my mood improved. I was not so aggressive anymore, not so sad anymore, not so self-pitying anymore and sometimes even feeling like going outside after weeks and months of hiding in the house … But the side effects were already extreme. Although in the leaflet weight gain was indicated as an adverse reaction, I continued to decline. I no longer had an appetite, often vomited and had constipation problems. Fatigue and exhaustion were the order of the day. Sometimes I could sleep through 10 hours at a stretch, but not at night! In general, I would recommend the drug but! I only used it because I got a drug that was better tolerated and had fewer side effects

    Amitriptyline for Fibromyalgia

    Through research here in the network and exchange with those affected, I harbored the suspicion of fibromyalgia. Unfortunately, my family doctor is one of the species that calls this disease non-existent. On my own I went to a rheumatologist, who was also well versed in this area and the suspected diagnosis of fibromyalgia. This has since been confirmed by my pain therapist, an anesthesiologist. However, she considers fibromyalgia just another name for a chronic pain syndrome. I am currently treating her with amitriptyline. First, 10 mg 3 times a day. This had very good effects on the pain, in the initial phase, however, as side effects severe fatigue and depression. The depression subsided on its own, the tiredness remained. I switched to Amitryptiline 25 mg retard once a day to sleep in the evening. Unfortunately, the effect on the pain subsided and the tiredness remained. Now I try 2 x daily Amitryptilin 10 mg and at night the delayed-release tablets with 25 mg. Unfortunately, the effect on the pain is not as good as it was at the beginning, the permanent fatigue makes it difficult for me. I’m lying in bed for at least 12 hours and still feel like being wheeled. At work is so far out of the question, which puts a lot of mental stress on me, because I have fears of the future.

    Side effects: Exhaustion; Fatigue

    Amitriptyline for Sleep disorders

    Because of the necessary ingestion of strong opiates it came after a long time with me to extreme sleep / sleep disorders for months. In the pain ambulance I was therefore recommended the additional intake of amitryptilin 25mg at bedtime as a sleep aid. The sleep problems subsequently decreased and the dose could be reduced to 12.5 mg (half tablet) after some time. In addition to the fatigue on awakening it comes to an extreme morning dry mouth, which leads to increased susceptibility to necking and dental problems. During the day I have to constantly suck candy to speak. The tablets have a pungent taste and if I do not swallow them with enough water, I get a stomachache.

    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

    Amitriptyline for Depression

    Amitriptyline was prescribed for suspected depression. When I took the drug for the first few weeks, I did not notice any effect, but instead it blew me completely a few hours after taking it. It is therefore advisable to take the drug initially only in the evening, so that one sleeps, while the side effects would occur. My doctor recommended that I take a tablet early after 3 weeks. Since I’m suffering from chronic fatigue anyway, I let that be after a few tries as it increased my fatigue. Nevertheless, it came to a slight mood-enhancing effect and made me with evening intake not the next day tired. The sedating side effect decreased quite abruptly. After a few weeks, no side effects were noticeable.

    Side effects: Daytime tiredness; Fatigue
