So they have put me on nortriptyline to see if it helps with the pain. I'm not on dmards as I can't tolerate them.
I was put on amiltriptyline last year but developed a scary arrhythmia one month in.
The amiltriptyline helped me sleep and I felt better. The nortriptyline seems to be having the opposite effect. I am unable to sleep and feel anxious and fidgety but in a morning I feel sick and very tired. I haven't been on it long and I'm only on ten mg. The amiltriptyline worked straight away but this just seems to be giving me some unpleasant side effects on top of my illness.
I'm taking it at nine and going to bed at ten but he effect of the drug doesn't seem to kick in until about seven am.
My iPad keyboard is locked and won't let me use numbers if people are wondering why I'm spelling times out lol
