Hi, I’m new on here & hope you can help.
I suffer with neuropathic pain, particularly in my feet. I’m barely able to stand anymore . Unfortunately I also have many allergies & intolerances. Due to problems taking meds, I was put on Butec patches but after a couple of months I began to get a severe reaction so had to stop.
I saw a new doctor on Monday who put me on Amitriptyline, I questioned it, as I’d previously been taken off it. He was adamant I give it a go. I’m only on a starter dose & have only been taking it for 4 days, but from day one, I became ridiculously restless after I’d taken them. I barely slept that night, it’s been the same every night since. Currently I’m sitting on the sofa, legs swinging, arms flailing, rocking, stretching, toes pointing etc. Leg restlessness is bad enough, but my body can’t stop moving.
I can’t go on like this. Should I stop immediately?
