Kitten, you should be taking the medication at night. I do not get headaches, but different people react differently to medication.

Mary I am taking them in the evening, that's when I need them, the headaches come the next day, it is early days so I should give my body time to adjust

You probably couldn't sleep because you STOPPED taking it, not because you were. As you stated you slept great while on them, but It's actually very normal to experience insomnia etc when you begin withdrawls from all different kinds of meds but especially ones that induce rest. I think your doctor misunderstood, and or should've continued to prescribe it if it helped you sleep but with a lot of these kinds of meds they'll suggest you take them every other day, or every two as to avoid becoming dependent on them while simultaneously allowing your body to self regulate your sleep cycle. I have the same thing when I stop taking it when previously taking it daily, but if I spread it out, I don't have much withdrawl at all.

Also to keep in mind with drugs like these it's also normal to have weeks or even a couple months for the therapeutic effects to completely stabilize, and anything that effects seratonin and the other neurotransmitters will have some degree of withdrawl. What you experienced is actually normal and to be expected :)

Sorry to hear about your discomfort , but I was just prescribe this medicine, Pharmacist did not explain the side effects, so i did my own search, to my surprise this darn medicine can cause so much side effects, including what you are going through. not to mention suicidal thoughts, mood changes, vision problem and the list goes on, my advise to you is, if you can get off this money making medicine please do, or always check for your self for the pros and cons before you ingest any medicine. as for me I will be settling with Tylenol, hope this helps somewhat.

It will get better with time. Take right before bed. I take them, it takes about 2 weeks to build up in my system. I suffer from cluster "headaches", They are horrible migraines that I get at least 3 times a day. After about 2 or 3 weeks this medicine knocks them completely out. This medicine has been a God send for me in the past. Today has been 2 weeks and 1 day being back on this medicine and today has been a "good day" so far.

I have been taking for about 3 weeks. I have an auto immune disease and suffer from chronic joint pain and fatigue. Since I have been taking them I have been sleeping really well and feeling so much better. Am a bit groggy in the morning and have had a dry mouth but other than that it's great and to be able to sleep a full night is just brilliant. Like I say just still a bit wierd in the morning but am hoping that's just loading doses.

I have been on 10 mg for just over two weeks. I have had two migraines but they are not as bad. So it is helping me, but the last three days I have no desire to eat. Also I do not sleep well at all and the first few hours after taking them they wake me up, they do not make me sleepy. So I guess I will keep taking them and see

sharon Says:

Hi my husband has been prescribed ami for chronic stomach pain. He has been on it since July. It is making him sleepy at night which is fine as he takes it at 7pm. He is very slow in the morning. However what is worrying me is that he has very bad memory loss, always depressed and lacks concentration. He was in a very high powered job and has had to retire at only 55. He is not the mandatory he used to be and I am so sick with worry that I do not know what to do. Do you think it that it is the tablets that are giving him these symptoms??

I'm hesitant to try amitriptyline again as I did take it many years ago with a bad reaction- I think, from reading your comments, my low dosage prescribed this time around, should be given a chance. Thanks for all your help!

Parvosufferer Says:

I have been on Elavil (20mg at night) for over two years and for neuropathy following parvovirus infection. I am also taking bisoprolol for tachycardia. Tachycardia came at the same time as the parvovirus and has continued ever since. Don't know if there is a connection to the Elavil or not. After two and a half years (and a few unsuccessful attempts to wean off the Elavil) I have started getting persistent headaches and dizziness. I forgot to take the Elavil one night and they were better the next day - so we are trying to wean off again. Trying my best to keep myself occupied to forget about the withdrawel symptoms that I have gotten in the past (flu like symptoms, brain zaps etc).
