I used to sleep like a baby on Amitriptyline but ended up on 50mgs. I eventuallyweaned myself off it after 8 yrs because I'd gained 2 stone. Trazodone 100mgs helps my depression but it's useless for sleep. I'm now relying on sleeping pills every night and get about 7-8 hrs but the pain is just awful and is making me weary. I'm seeing my GP next week but I don't know what I want him to give me. I could try a low dose of Amitriptyline alongside the Trazodone (which seems to be keeping my weight down actually) but I'm scared of side effects in general. All other drugs he's suggested I've read up on and dismissed. Please just shoot me, this is all getting too much.
