When I used to take amitriptyline I slept like a log,had a horrible taste in my mouth,sweated,put on over 2 stones in weight and still had aches and pains. I was also on a statin which I think made the pain worse so I came off that too with GPs permission! Come to think of it I was still depressed at times too. So I came off the amitriptyline (long story) now I'm 2 stone lighter and have no aches and pains but I am depressed, don't sleep at all well and have developed digestive problems like a globus in my throat and acid reflux.Does anyone else have this?
I don't know what to do, no two days are the same.I've found taking Omega 3 EPA ,vit B and Evening primrose oil to be of some benefit overall but this yoyoing depression is awful. Are anti depressents really the only answer do you think? I just don't want to get fat again and need to eat like a horse (they just make you eat like that!) My son is getting married in next year or so and I want to look good like I had worked up to for my other sons wedding last year. Its a dilemma isn't it!?
