It didn't work 😭

For those who remember that I was hoping that my worsened condition due to amitriptyline would reflect in my latest round of blood didn't!

ANA was back down at 1:80 and zero zip zilch extractable antibodies of any kind. Something very interesting ESR has stayed consistently higher at 25 in my December test and this weeks test. I think that tells a story in it's own right.

Hi, how long have you been off amitriptyline?

my wife has been off it 3 months now and as the withdrawals have gone she is due a blood test next week, so will be interesting to see if there are any changes


I've only stopped taking it 3 days ago. It made me feel terrible and made all my symptoms worse. I did a 12 week trial.
