I have poorly controled diabetes with a sleeping disorder and I take two 50mg of amitriptyline. What can I do to help with my heart beating at an alarming rate of 130 to 138 beats per minute Without lowering my intake of the amitriptyline, for it is helpping with my sleeping disorder (because sleeping pills dont work alone) and with my neuropathy pain (nerve damage) in my feet, legs and hands. ## Amitriptyline can increase your blood sugar.

synergistic effect prosed and amitriptolyne ## I'm not sure what aspects of each drug you might be referring to as far as having a "synergistic effect", but both of these medication have completely different uses. Prosed/DS is a urinary antiseptic, urinary acidifier, analgesic, and anticholinergic combination. It works by helping to kill bacteria in the urine, decreasing pain and inflammation, and reducing muscle spasms in the urinary tract. These actions work together to help relieve discomfort while urinating. Amitriptyline is used to treat symptoms of depression. Amitriptyline is in a class of medications called tricyclic antidepressants. It works by increasing the amounts of certain natural substances in the brain that are needed to maintain mental balance.

Hello. I was prescribed amitriptyline 25mg for chronic migraines two years ago. I am trying to wean myself off it now and am finding the withdrawal symptoms awful. Palpitations are the worst.

I'm very sorry about what you're going through. This can happen anytime you've been on a medication for a long period of time and try to stop taking it.
