Can Amitriptyline effect periods?

Hi all, (mostly ladies) :see_no_evil:

Just a quicky, since I’ve upped my dose of Amitriptyline to 25mg I am late for my monthly cycle, its around 4 days late. I am having all the symptoms that I would get before my usual ones. Bad migraine, cramps all the rest but just no actual period…

Is this common? :thinking:

Yes it can. No idea how common it is. It’s highly anticholinergic. Try Search facility. I’ve posted before. Helen

Hi Kirsty!
Well, mine have been wonky for the past few months but I chocked it up to mid-life creeping :smirk:
Now, I am curious to do some research!

Hey Reneè!

Oh really? Do you know roughly what dose you were on when they started being a little off?
I’ve only gone up 5mg so only a pin prick.

Not that I like having them but still I need to be mentally stable :joy::joy: hoping it will pass once Im used to the new dosage. I’ve found a few topics on it now thanks to @Onandon03! :+1:
