Are you asking if anyone is on Amitriptyline for depression?
If so, I am. This is the second time I've been on Amitriptyline. I find it very good and I hardly get any side effects apart from the drowsy feeling in the morning on initiation of treatment. That seems to continue if I up my dose.
The usual dose for depression is 75-150mg per day, either is divided doses or a single dose at bedtime - although I take mine at about 7pm.
It is a useful medicine as it is used for many other things too, like migraine prevention, anxiety and chronic pain control.
Some GPS can be reluctant to prescribe as it is an 'older' type of antidepressant. But I made an informed decision and decided I wanted to try it as my sleeping was awful at the time when my twins were about 12 months old. I had severe exhaustion and post natal depression. GP listened to my reasons and somewhat reluctantly prescribed it. I am glad she did as I have tried 3 SSRIs and venlafaxine and I find Amitriptyline works for me.
It is not right for everyone, pre-existing health conditions esp to do with the heart is usually not recommended for Amitriptyline.
I have read a lot about it and it is as efficacious as other antidepressants and sometimes gets better results but like I said as it's 'old' and less favourable side effect profile it's not widely prescribed anymore.
But I love it, it works for me.
Much love ❤️
