After my first consultation at pain clinic, I have been told to increase my amitriptyline from 20mg at night to a max of 100mg at 10mg increases per week. I have also been told to start on pregabalin twice a day which I am starting next weekend. Increasing amitriptyline from 20mg to 30mg this weekend, Saturday was pretty dazed all day, today Sunday slept till 11.30 and felt less than 100%. I dread to think of the effects of both together but in order to remove morphine at night for sleep, it is worth it?!?! Anyone else felt this way after start of increase of amitriptyline? I normally take them at 9pm and considering earlier as work tomorrow may be difficuilt if feeling this way as driving may be an issue of safety at 7am when I leave.
