Effects of Long Term Amitriptyline Use on the Hear
60 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...

How Long Does 600 mg Amitriptlyne Stay In Your System
2 Replies RSS
My sister is in the hospital due to an overdose of Amitriptlyne. She had been taking 300mg for more than 25 years. She is now diabetic so her kidneys are not excreting the dosage like it should. Therefore when the blood level came back it was equal to 600mg. Therefore the doctors had no choice but to cut her off cold. She is very combative and screaming etc. How long will this last? ## Its hard to say whether or not she may be experiencing withdrawal symptoms from going cold turkey off the pill, or if the cognitive symptoms are simply from having too much serotonin. Amitriptyline has an average half-life of 15 hours. Half-life here means that, say, 15 hours after ingesting Amitriptyline, half of the active amount will be gone. This doesn't mean that 15 hours later, though, the other...

Tryptomer 10 Mg Dose
11 Replies RSS
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. As to stopping it, after that short of a time period, no there really shouldn't be any problems with it, if her doctor ...

tylex 500mg is it safe to take with amitriptyline
1 Reply RSS
Is it safe to take tylex 500mg with amitriptyline and prozac and statins plus insulin ## Hello, Belinda! How are you? Which statin and which insulin? I'm sorry, but I need more specifics to be able to check this all out for you. The FDA classifies Tylex as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. The Prozac can make the Codeine more potent, so you shouldn't combine them, unless your doctor specifically approves it.
