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 was sceptical when I read about withdrawal symptoms with such a low dose.
But having taken it last at 9 in the evening on Monday, I had violent shivers on Wednesday afternoon and now at 3 on Thursday afternoon I'm dizzy and nauseous. Unbelievable that such a small dose can create such dependence. But having also had the morning headaches again that I used to get every day before I took amitriptyline, I can see no option but to start taking it again. Looks like I'll be on it for life
