Effects of Long Term Amitriptyline Use on the Heart
83 Replies RSS
After 20 years of taking amitriptyline for headaches I would like to find people who have had any heart related side effects after long term amitriptyline use. ## Very little is known about the long-term effects of most drugs for depression. The biggest problem reported currently is relapse, when the medication is discontinued. You can read more about antidepressants here: As to any cardiac effects, I am only finding warnings that problems may occur if it is used with some specific other medications. Does anyone else know anything about this? ## I have been on Elavil for 20 years and 100mg at bedtime and I don't recommend anyone taking it long term. I have heart palpatations every day which was determined from Dr. that it was hormonal, but I don't believe it. I tried to decrease...

amitriptyline for 13 year old
1 Reply RSS
My daughter has left side paralysis. Doctors diagnosed her with conversion disorder. But I know it's vaccine injury. She cannot sleep and has really bad headaches. He put her on amitryptille for the headache alone he claims. I don't think she would be taking this medication ## My 12 year old daughter took this med for 12 weeks to help with migraines. For some people this is a miracle drug. For her it was awful. Headaches got worse. She experienced severe anxiety and panic. We weaned her off over the course of three weeks. It has been 5 weeks since last dose and she is still not herself.

What is the maximum dose of this drug that is being used for a better nights sleep? My doctor prescribed me 50mg. to be taken 1 hour before I plan on going to sleep. I've been taking as prescribed for 2 weeks and so far have NOT had any improvement. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!! ## Ambien also known as Zolpidem and Silnox works well for me, but you can become dependent on them. I used to take it right before bed and listen to a sleep called sleep easily and I would be sound asleep before the CD had ended. I used to wake up on a hourly basis. I was lucky to ever get 4 hours sleep straight and when I did I felt like super woman. But this medication withe sleep easily which can be downloaded to your phone or I pad I would sleep straight through and didn't have any problem...

Side Effects Of Trepiline
4 Replies RSS
I was prescribed trepiline many years ago for back ache. I now find that they do not help any longer. I have tried over a period of 3 months to gradually stop taking these tablets. Then the migraines began. They were coming one after another all day. Fortunately I do not get the severe headache. My GP said that I must go back on them immediately. I do not see why it is necessary to take a tablet that does not help any longer and also made me gain 10kg weight.Please give me your advise. It would be appreciated. ## Tripelene contains Amitriptyline, which is a tricyclic antidepressant that is also used to help with some forms of nerve pain. Since it is an antidepressant, it works on brain chemicals, so experiencing such symptoms if you stop taking it can be normal. Learn more Amitriptyline...

I have not taken this yet and it has been prescribed if my peripheral neuropathy does not improve with the Lyrica, my hands are the worse with osteo in them as well.. I have gained 14 pounds and went from a 36 to a 38 in 6 weeks....How have you found taking amitriptyline and have you gained any or much weight? ## Both of these medications carry the risk of causing weight gain, according to NIH reports. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and mood changes. How long have you been taking the Lyrica? Are you on any other medications? ## I have been taking Lyrica for just over 3 months and my dosage has been reduced from 600 mg to 450-300 as I need. It has made a small difference. Some days I just bloat up for no reason and I have balanced out with the weight. I...

small yellow round pill with v 2102 - is it narcotic
1 Reply RSS
What is this pill used for? It's a small yellowish round pill with a fancy V on one side and 2102 on the other side... Is it an opioid or not? ## No, it is not. This tablet is manufactured by Qaulitest Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 25mgs of Amitriptyline, which is a tricyclic antidepressant. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

Tiny round yellow pill with imprint IA 25

Hi my friend gave me 2 of these to help with my chronic migraines - she said it was generic endone. They're tiny (but bigger than a birth control pill) bright yellow with the imprint IA, then a score with 25 underneath. Nothing on the other side. I have a prescription for endone 5mg but need to get to dr for new prescription which won't happen for a week. I'm a bit uneasy about taking it until I know EXACTLY what it is. Can someone please help? ## I have some of those tablets too ! Can someone tell me what they are please ? ## Hi, I'm in the same situation and can't find any information about these. Did you find out, or did you try them? ## It is an anti depressant that does not mix well with some other meds. APO-Amitriptyline tablet looks like 10mg tablet: Blue colo...
