    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 Sleep disorders; Depression

    Haldol and Risperidon … Hellendinger! But well … They work differently for each … In Haldol I suffered from painful gaze spasms, extrapyramidal movement disorders, mild tremors in the arms and legs and after weaning, a nearly 5 months persisting insomnia, only by diazepane intravenously was suspended for just 4 hours. Risperdal had similar side effects … tremor and uneasiness or something … Both drugs made me helpless and desperate! Amitriptyline made little mention of it … The drive got better … However, it caused a mania and confusion … And Seroquel … Works okay, but even at a low dosage of 100-0-100 it has strange emotional deafness caused! Good that I do not take all these fucking things anymore …..

    Side effects: Confusion; Insomnia

    Amitriptyline for Sleep disorders; Depression

    For about 1.5 years, take 15 mg mirtazapine every evening. As for me bad side effects are loss of reality, bad nightmares, severe fatigue and lack of concentration occurred. After info to my therapist this changed from one to the morning the drug. Should simply omit mirtazapine and take a small dose of amitriptyline instead. After taking a restless, sleeplessness, panic attacks occurred. Was the whole night awake and I am thrilled by the apartment Had also tachycardia. Was even the next day still very hippleig and turned up.wie as if I would have thrown in any drugs. On work I was funny white and fit. Was during the afternoon then a little quieter. still could not sleep. My body was tired but my head was wide awake. I wanted to sleep but could not. Then managed to sleep for half an hour. But when I woke it was hell. Had full panic attacks, mood swings and suicidal thoughts. I’m totally crazy. I was just crying and could not stop. In my head were only bad bad thoughts. I could not think clearly anymore and was a completely different person. My mood swings changed from mourning to anger every minute. In my anger I ended up scratching my arms. I had such aggression against myself and against others that I would have been capable of anything. Was about to commit suicide. I was at this point in time. For me my life had no more perspective. The drama continued until the next morning. After I had burned up so mentally and physically from crying and thoughts, I just sat on the floor apathetically and did not respond. I was literally in shock. Could not sleep in spite of the exhaustion A well-known then was informed then I drove to the hospital where I got injected with a drug to calm down.
