Hi! i have been on 25mg of amitriptyline for about 4 weeks for sleep. it gives me dreamless night but it have severe drowsiness during day time and this will affect my work. i try to decrease the dosage by cutting it into pieces and taking it early before the bed. i am also afraid of the withdrawal effect and decided to use it once in two days. does this have any side effect(could it make the side effect to last long?)? does taking the drug by dissolving in water have an effect on its effectiveness? please tell me whatever you know! i don't know what to do! even i couldn't read with concentration!( does taking coffee has an effect on the drug?)!
