amitriptyline

Postby casper1 » Sun Apr 15, 2018 2:12 pm

I have been on this medication for 4 years, 50 mg each night. I take it for nerve pain.
I also took it with trazadone 375mg also 4 years
I was taken off trazadone last October because of palpitations.
since then I have been on sertraline, mirtazapine and now fluoxetine.
the doctor has started to reduce my amitriptyline by 10mg every two weeks because it stops her putting me on other depression medication.
the first 10mgs I was ok, now been taking 30mgs and I have vertigo problems and a very bad headache anyone experienced this. I see the doctor 20/04/2018 so will mention it.
I sometimes wonder whether starting medication is a good idea, but don't think I would get through this without them x
