I've recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and was given Amitriptyline 10mg by my GP a couple of weeks ago.
I have 2 children under 2 and I'm recently single so was advised not to take them until someone could stay overnight with me.
So, I arranged for help last night and tonight and popped my first dose around 7 pm.
I slept in the same room as the baby, didn't hear her waking once and it turned out her dad was in soothing her 5 times. Woke up this morning feeling like a zombie, spaced out and like I was carrying a tonne of bricks.
So, went back to bed, slept another 3 hrs, woke up in tears feeling even worse and had to call my mum to come and help me snap out of it. Ended up sleeping another 3 hours on the sofa and only started to feel reasonably normal again about 6.30 this evening.
So, sorry for rambling on, I still don't feel very with it...
Has anyone else had a similar experience?
And maybe found that these effects improved with perseverance?
Needless to say I've decided not to take it again this evening, couldn't face it and wouldn't be able to look after my girls tomorrow if I was in the same state.
Thanks in advance x
