Side Effects Of Trepiline

I was prescribed tripelene 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 migrains 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. Kindly keep my email address confidential. ## 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 ...

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.

I have bilateral sciatica. It is caused by Stenosis of the spine, and I am in a lot of pain. I need an operation to remove it, and I have been to many hospitals in the area, but no-one wants to do it. This is because I have Ischaemic heart disease, and my heart stopped when my local hospital tried to operate. I have been on morphgesic 20mg twice a day. I think it is useless when I am have just taken it, but when it wears off I am in intense pain. I take Gabapentin (900mg 3 times daily), and Amitriptyline 75mg at night and Oramorph when the pain becomes too much to bear. What can I do? ## Since no-one seems to know what I should do, I will add a few more diseases: I have had 4 MI, 3 after CABG, and the last one was 20 years ago. My heart is basically a mess, and the problem is caused by ...
