Effects of Long Term Amitriptyline Use on the Heart
95 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...

Which countries worldwide can one find Nucleo CMP Forte? ## Nucleo CMP Forte (60-100?) ## MY BROTHER HAD A STOKE AND EVERY SINCE HE CANT SLEEP, HE HAS TRY ALL KIND OF SLEEPING PILL BUT NOTHING HAS WORKED AND NOW HIS DOCTOR PRESCRIBED IT NUCLEO CMP FORT IS THIS MEDICINE GOOD FOR THIS TYPE OF PROBLEM THANKS FOR YOUR HELP ## @Pedro (post #2), From what I could gather, CMP Nucleo Forte contains two nucleotides (Cytidine 5'-Monophasphate Disodium + Uridine Triphosphate Trisodium); and is reportedly used to treat a wide variety of peripheral nervous system disorders.

Amitriptyline misery
1 Reply RSS
Hi, I have been depressed for 5 years, almost 6 now. My illness has been very resistant to medical treatment. I have tried a variety of antidepressants and had no results. Now I have been on 150mg of amitriptyline for half a year. It has been THE WORST medication for me. This one has made my suicidal thoughts and overall depression even worse! I can feel my mood drop significantly when I miss a dose, and tapering off this medicine has been a nightmare. I recently saw my psychiatrist yesterday. We made a plan to slow down the tapering process by going down 10mg a week. Last night was my first dose of 140mg, and I really cannot tel if it is just the natural course of my overall illness or if it is making me worse again. Or what if it's just the medicine in general? I don't know if...

I am taking 25 MG at night and sometimes 25 MG in the day time. I have very short temper and I get angry very fast. I am a very busy man at the office and have to handle a variety of things simultaneously. When I take the medicine I feel ok. My only worry is that if I continue too long I will get addicted to it and will that be bad? Also need to know if I take this tab regularly will it affect my libido? ## I tried that, made me suicidal..... My dad was on it, he sold his land for nothing and now rents at age 74. this medicine may have its uses, but not with me. ## Mike, while your suicidal tendencies are possible on this medication, they are very rare and not representative of the typical user. As to your dad's actions, there is really no way to say whether or not the medication ha...
