Hi, I recently increased Amitriptyline by 5mg and after 2 weeks found my feet were swelling worse and not going down after a nights rest with them raised. I have not been able to get back to my doctor about this but it has made me wonder whether my extra weight could also be down to this med? I am nearing 18 stone! At 5' 8" I could carry some of this but have had to increase the size of my wheelchair, shoes and clothes. I need some help coming up with an alternative med.
I also take Lyrica, Co-Dydramol, Tegretol for epilepsy and cannot use anti-inflamatories as I have reflux.
If you could give me some suggestions for my doctor to investigate I would appreciate it.
Thank you for your help!
