    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 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 A headache

    I take the medication for daily head, back and neck pain. Painkillers did not work anymore. I started with 2 drops and am now 20 years old. Finally I can fall asleep in the evening and sleep in about 6 hours. The head, back and neck pain has fallen sharply. I am even free of pain on a daily basis. On pain days I can bear the headache and am able to work. After taking Amitriptyline I feel dry mouth and an unpleasant taste on the tongue. However, these symptoms do not last long and I can live with it well. I have difficulty with weight gain, which is extreme. But I prefer a few pounds heavier than daily with KOpfschmerzen to live.

    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 A headache

    Hello, I have been taking amitriptyline for 3 months now. Side effects: – Dry mouth – Fatigue throughout the day – Slight weakness (when you leave after a few hours) – Strong appetite – Heartburn Despite these side effects, I can only recommend the drug. It helped a lot to get rid of my winter depression. Despite the very strong appetite and greatly increased food, no weight gain is observed. It may also be due to my sport (triathlon), but the other side effects are negligible. Have / had tension headaches, but have completely gone after taking the drug for 2 weeks hab.

    Amitriptyline for Sleep disorders

    I take a 25 mg prolonged-release amitriptyline in the evening. The first four weeks I slept a lot, in the first week 18 hours a day. But after four weeks, I had a normal need for sleep again. I take amitriptyline for recurrent chronic headaches. It reduces the number of pain days, but does not eliminate the headache problem. In addition, I take it against sleep disorders. During the first 3 months, it had a sleep-inducing effect, but then no more.

    Amitriptyline for Sleep disorders

    Amitriptyline by the doctor for insomnia (150mg evening) and underweight get. Sleep disorders have improved a bit (now about 4 hours sleep per day), weight gain has unfortunately not occurred despite increased appetite. Side effects are significant, especially at night, tachycardia, nightmares and depression. Furthermore, no particularly hard erections are possible and the desire for pleasure has fallen sharply during sex and masturbation. Achieving an orgasm is greatly delayed even in masturbation (so from about 45 min.), But mostly not possible because the erection goes back before. Dry mouth and constantly disgusting coating and taste in the mouth are not particularly bad, but still disturb. Benefit and harm of the drug are overall in a bad relation.

    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 Fibromyalgia

    For more than 2 years now I am taking Amitriptyline (Amineurin25). My neurologist prescribed it for pain relief because of my fibromyalgia. I could not tell a real difference in the pain sensation (but you never know how it would be without it now). On the advice of the doctor, I had increased the dosage, but it was also too tired in the daytime, bland, impotent, so I returned to the 25 mg. Negative: – As a sleep aid Amintriptyline now no longer fulfills its purpose, I have again great sleep problems. – The permanent dry mouth (the eyes are dry, so it is not surprising that you can tolerate contact lenses worse) and disturb the bitter taste. – And of course the weight gain – no idea what is at the expense of Medikamnets and what my feeding attacks – but at least I managed last year to massively lose weight, but unfortunately I have the weight now back on it. Positive: – Probably due to amitriptyline, I have almost no allergy symptoms (hay fever, nut allergy). – My ability to concentrate as well as my stress capacity at work have improved. That’s why I intend to continue taking the drug while I’m still working (4 years).

    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 ???
