    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 Pain (chronic)

    Before therapy with amitriptyline, I had tension headaches lasting years (sometimes severe pain for 3-4 weeks at a time). When I arrived at the point where NIX was more, i. E. my everyday life was beyond control; The headache with painkillers can not be controlled. A neurologist then prescribed me amitriptyline (first 12.5 then 25 mg in the evening). Already a few days I felt better. Hardly any headache. That means: Before that I had severe pain for about 20 days a month. Under amitriptyline in about 3-5 days, which means a considerable improvement in the quality of life for me. Positive: You get out of the pain circulation, painkillers are reduced, the tension headaches are drastically less – that really means a lot! Negative: Despite the low dosage, I also got loose 7 kilos on the scales. This finally caused me so much frustration after 7 months of therapy that I discontinued the tablets 2 weeks ago. The pills have made me totally tired and impotent. Mainly in the morning I felt like dead, which I z.T. really bad. I was partially unable to get up. At the beginning of the therapy I had a strong dry mouth. Was really terrible; Without water next to the bed it did not work anymore. But that got better after about 2-3 months. I also had my nose closed all the time. No cold or something, but nose totally blocked. No smell possible. Otherwise I never had anything to do with it. Despite the great experience of being headache free, I had severe mental lows during the treatment, humorous, sometimes aggressive behavior (not otherwise!). Parallel occurred with me a thyroid inflammation with nodule formation and a bad compatibility of my contact lenses. Whether there is a connection – no idea. My conclusion: For me, the therapy was already worth it because I came out of my headache circulation. There is no real alternative to amitriptyline. Now I have dropped the TAbletten since 2 weeks and my headache pile up a bit more. MAl wait. My neurologist says that after Absetzén (he recommends, incidentally, a longer duration of use than 7 months) should be an improvement to before, unfortunately no disappearance. For me it would be great if only 1-2 weeks a month would have a headache. Would I do the therapy again? I believe NO! Despite slight success, the side effects (weight, depression, aggressive behavior, nightmares, dark thoughts, extreme impotence, chronic nasal congestion, dizziness, heavy sweating) are just too intense for me personally. Especially now the effects after weaning: losing weight a mental torture; extreme falling asleep, headache, irritability, sweats – hope that’s over soon. But what if I get back to the point where the headache is nothing more ???

    Amitriptyline for Nerve damage; Morbus sudeck; A headache; Pain (acute)

    Hello! After taking Amitripylin – neuraxpharm 40mg in the first days 15 drops before going to bed, after 3 days almost symptom free. Suffering from conditional surgery since I was 14 years old. By reaching the age of 44 I had no desire to live. Only pain – was hardly able to go. Scar pain from 11 Op`s did the rest. I had no quality of life anymore! After my family doctor died, I took this pain therapy with Amitripylin – neuraxpharm myself from the WWWeb. My new family doctor is open for everything and prescribed me this drug. After 3 days I found an almost painless life there. I still can not understand that I have not been prescribed this medicine at the beginning of the pain. Unfortunately, this drug also has a few side effects in the form of potency problems, poor urination, fatigue and listlessness. Since the drug stimulates food, you quickly put many kilos! I have changed with the intake of the drug my diet accordingly and have lost to date 12 pounds! When taking the throat in the short term. The medicine does not really taste good. But seriously, I am again very good for my circumstances! I like to pay the price of the side effects, but I have my life back. Now after 3 months I have increased the daily dose to 20 drops. I am very thankful that this medicine exists. Now it’s time for a blood test, as blood levels may change rapidly. I hope that everything is fine and that I can take this medication for the rest of my life. Never again do I want to be a prisoner of my body, then rather dead. I am clearly giving a yes for amitripyline – neuraxpharm !!! My quality of life today is almost normal. Friendly greetings to everyone!

    Amitriptyline for Depression

    Fatigue, exhaustion, listlessness, no desire for nothing. I did not really get better with the drug. The Depries did decline, but I got into a kind of zombie mode.
