Changed pharmacies today and received the 10mg amitriptyline in blue. The first month I used this from the previous pharmacy the pill was pink. Is there any difference in the two? ## Put, pictures of amitriptyline 10mg, in Google. You should see a link to pictures. They do come in pink and blue and other colors. ## @Frankie, If you get them filled from a licensed pharmacy, odds are that the two medications contain the same active ingredients and dosage, but may have different binders/fillers. If you happen to know the pill imprint you can either look it up online or post it here for reference. However, in my own findings, a round blue pill marked with V 2101 reportedly contains 10mgs of Amitriptyline made by Qualitest. And you can view a photo of it by clicking the following National Dr... ...

Amitriptyline misery

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 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. Please get it under control. It will slow the heart rate, make you feel better and have less nerve pain. Diabetes and Amitriptyline are not the best of friends. Uncontrolled blood sugar levels and the meds can be very dangerous and on occasion fatal. Please Please Please get control of the diabetes. Trust me its worth it. ## And you should see a doct... ...

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.

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... ...

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. My doctor prescribed a beta blocker last week but I still feel very anxious, slightly depressed and my heartbeat is still a bit out of sync. Is anyone able to help me with some advice as to how to get through this. I halved the tablets about two weeks ago. At first I felt fine then some symptoms starting popping up. ## Hi, Alison! 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. I did stop one cold turkey after being on it for years and it took about 6 weeks or so for the worst of the... ...
