Hi all, I decided to try not taking amitriptyline for a few days to see what happens. I'm only on 10mg a night to help me sleep and reduce fibro pain.
I am currently going through a 4 year long process of being diagnosed with fibromyalgia, nobody has known why ive been in so much pain for so long bit finally ive found a consultant that believes i have fibro like i have thought all these years. My pain is 24/7 i cant sleep ive lost a ridiculous amount of weight because i cant eat, i pass out and faint due to all this.
Due to my anxiety , stress recently.... resulting in me not been able to sleep which I don't mind to much, but lying there having turns and increasing the anxiety and stress and things run round my head in the middle of the night, my GP prescribed Zopicione...
I'm on Maxitram ( Tramadol ) , Cocodamol 300/500 , Gabapentine ,Amitriptyline I was orginally on Florexitine ( antidepression ) and one of the Gps took me off it she said it could cause a serotionan ( sorry can not remember spelling ) attack with taking Tramadol as well. I was then put on Amitriptyline as it helps with depression and pain.
Hi guys I thought I would let you know, I've been on antidepressants for on and off the whole 20 years that I've been hypo because my doctors told me I was depressed even though my complaint was fatigue, I rang them today and told them I've reduced my dose right down and to take them off my prescription and her reply was you can't do that ? And I replied yes I can and I have,i told her I've complained a million times about severe fatigue and you just throw antidepressants at me, it's a pity I couldn't get rid of the amitriptyline but they are for migraines but Thankyou very much guys I would have never have known if it wasn't for the forum.
I got diagnosed with ibs a few weeks back, but I'm getting dizzy a lot and every now and then lightheaded, I've had bloods checks and eye tests and still tests all clear, the dizziness comes and go without warning, docs are saying anxiety because when I had the stomach troubles I instantly assumed bowel cancer, I was going outta my mind with worry, I'm now starting amitriptyline 10mg a night for the anxiety but do anyone else get dizzy/lightheaded with anxiety? And for no reason?
Does anyone also suffer with Lichen Planus along with the fibro doctors are changing me from amitriptyline to nortrypyline really struggling to get any sleep was on 75mg of amy down to 20mg of the nortrypyline how the hell can that be right any suggestion would be welcome I'm in uk not the well informed USA .... x
Hello All, I am on 100mg Levothyroxine been to the doctor today regarding symptoms [ exhaustion, anger, confusion ] and although she suggested two weeks ago to stop taking antidepressant Fluxotine as it was not working she seems at a loss at what to do and now suggests taking a drug called Amitriptyline, I googled it and it doesn't seem like a good drug to me, what do other people think about this. Last blood test results were: Serum TSH 4.98 mu/L [ 0.27 - 4.2 ] Serum free T4 level 11.4 pmol/L [ 11.0 - 20 ] Basically the doctor is saying to me there is nothing else to be done regarding hypothyroidism, no increase in Levo etc, no other treatment other than antidepressants
