All medications can affect people different, though, and this site is not medical professionals to pinpoint your problem. Have you spoken to your doctor about it, yet? ## I also have IC.

3 Replies RSS
I came off A almost 4 months ago. It was very hard at first (I cut the dose in half for a few weeks and then I took away the last half), I couldn't sleep for two months, almost got crazy, but now I can sleep again. Instead now I'm tired all the time. Just wanna sleep. I've got an iron deficiency and also allergy, so maybe that's the reason I'm so tired, I don't know. What I wanted to ask you is something that's been happening lately and scares the h** out of me. When I'm about to fall asleep I get these chills, get cold, and it tingles down my spine, it's like I could feel all the nerves in my spine and I understand this doesn't sound like something scary maybe, but I instantly wake up terrified and with tremendous anxiety and shaking from being s...

My mom started Tryptomer 10 last Thursday. Took full tablet every night for 3 days. Felt nausea and drowsiness. Doc said to reduce it to half immediately (4th day). Half tablet also not suiting as she is feeling drowsy 24 hours. Can I stop it completely with immediate effect? Hardly been 7 days since shes taking it? ## Have you consulted her doctor about stopping it? Tryptomer contains Amitriptyline, which is an antidepressant and, side effects, such as the drowsiness are quite normal for this class of medications. They can last for as long as 4 to 6 weeks, while her body adjusts to the medication, then they should hit their peak in severity and start to taper off.
