My anxiety is bad today

Well I started on amitriptyline last night. I slept ok but my anxiety feels worst. I'm angry today and feel like I have no one, I feel alone. I don't know how to describe it. I woke up crying, like I don't normally do that. My husband said one thing to me about wanting his wife back and I nearly lost it. How do I feel? I feel like I am being pumped antidepressants because something must be wrong with me if I don't want to work as a nurse. I have to take them to handle all the BS and comments my husband makes saying "I don't want to lose my house". Or listening to someone tell you, you can't be sick. I don't feel good at all today

I started taking nortriptyline which is the same as amitriptyline for my chronic tension headache. I have been on it for almost 3 weeks and it has made my anxiety worse. Apparently it's normal for someone to feel sick and have more anxiety before the meds kick in. I'm going to try toughting it out for a bit longer because I have faith that this med will help with my tension headache but it's going to take time. I am also in the process of treating my anxiety with a councelor. If it is to much for you to handle call your doctor and get there opion. Maybe they will switch you to other meds or change your dosage. I wish you the best of luck and hang in there, you will get better!


Thank you for your response. I didn't expect to feel so bad, but at least I know now it may pass. I hope it does help me, as I was given it to treat my fibromyalgia. Fingers crossed
