Is there anyone out there who has had to reluctantly go back on to amitriptyline simply because they can't sleep? My GP gave me the sleeping pill zopiclone but only to be taken every 2 -3 nights. It usually helps but the inbetween nights are a nightmare because I see every hour on the clock and feel so bad for the lack of sleep. I used to take 50mgs of amitriptyline but weaned myself of with much difficulty because of weight gain and other side effects. I'm wondering if just 10mgs would do the trick for a good nights sleep and maybe the low dose might not give me as many side effects as 50mgs did. I have a more sedentary job now so my work doesn't aggrevate my pain like it did when I was taking 50mgs. Any tips??
