I was prescribed Amitriptyline in a low dose too help me sleep as i'm sure others have been, it has played it's part in helping me too sleep, i have had too make adjustments too figure out how it best plays its part in helping me too sleep,
even when other drugs are added such as entacapone which has and had the effect of altering my sleep from getting Quality deep sleep too being almost sleepless within a few weeks with pain, remembering too take that Amitriptyline earlier in the evening to null nerve pain in my sleep i hope regains that balance with controlled release Madopar giving me deeper restful sleep.
I haven't gained any weight, infact i've lost some, that isn't down too the Amitriptyline i have long lost a appetite or interest for food to eat a big meal, chasing food with a big spoon isn't very graceful.
I ve had no ill effects from amitriptyline and i dont feel any addiction too it. a stigma from the past?.
