    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 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.

    Amitriptyline for Depression

    I’ve been taking amitriptyline for about 4 months now after 13 years of having my depression. It took a long time for me to decide to even take any medication. Now, in retrospect, I get annoyed that I did not do it much earlier. Amitryptiline was prescribed for me because I also had (connected with my depression) a very pronounced irritable bowel syndrome and also from the stomach, most of the drugs have very poorly tolerated. Since amitriptyline is also used in irritable bowel syndrome and probably has a positive effect on the autonomic nervous system, I killed two birds with one stone. The side effects were in my beginning very pronounced with constantly very cold hands, fingers and feet, as well as numb fingers and at times a numb lip. In addition, there was ongoing fatigue and at times in the first few weeks sleep disorders with sweating and nightmares. There were also extreme mood swings and irritability. My neurologist then advised me to lower the dose once more and then slowly re-dose it. At the moment I am at 75 mg and I have to say that I have never felt better …..! The side effects are almost completely gone (except the fatigue), also my depression and the irritable bowel !!! To the weight gain described by many, I can say that I have no problems with it, but I also go to the sport 3 times a week. But yes, the increased craving for sweets I have already noticed. However, I think weight gain is not as significant as the benefits of amitriptyline treatment. At least not for me!
