    Amitriptyline for Sleep disorders

    I am taking 10mg for strong and permanent sleep and sleep disorders since 4 weeks. I have hardly any side effects, at most a little more thirsty at night and sometimes a bit tired during the day. But compared to before (2-4h sleep a night, not in one piece) the fatigue is laughable. I have not gained any weight at all, but I have always been relatively healthy and have been doing endurance sprays regularly for years, at 60-90 minutes 2-3 times a week at the stress limit.

    Side effects: Daytime tiredness; Thirst

    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 Migraine

    I generally have little side effect. Which is great! Especially since I was taking before about 2-5 days Mirgäne (including pre- and Nachphasen). On closer observation, I can say that I am more thirsty and a bit more hungry than before. Weight gain I can not judge, at least not 6 Kg in 2 weeks like another time wrote! The thirst is noticeable, but it does not matter, because I have drunk anyway too little and now just more will be remembered. Since I’m a big dreamer (in the truest sense of the word, when I’m a child with sleepwalking and still telling stories as a teenager, now with only memories of the morning or emotional upset), I now have the feeling of being better in the morning and having a better night’s sleep , I also take a low dose of 10mg. But I can take these too late, without getting stuck in bed in the morning. Very rarely I am unusually tired in the morning. This was much worse with migraine. I had since the first intake no significant seizure more!
