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?

I started taking amitriptyline HCL 10MG 5 years ago. I would now like to wean myself off of the pills. How to I decrease the dosage and how long will it take before I am free from any problems.

However, the modern preferred method is usually to have a patient start to skip doses, while also gradually lowering how much they take. As listed by the FDA, possible withdrawal effects may include nausea, fever, chills, diarrhea, rebound depression and rebound anxiety. It's hard to say how long it will take to be free of issues, you've been on it for years, so it could take a month, or so. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I am taking A brown amitriptyline at night for insomnia and it ...
