I have been taking Amitriptyline for about 16 days now. 5mg for 1 week, 10mg for 2-3 days, down to 5mg for another week. I felt pretty good by the end of the first week and that is why I bumped my prescription up to 10mg (maybe too quickly???). Only major issue during week 1 was some fatigue and tiredness, and for me that is not really an issue at all
Although I think the 5mg of Amitriptyline may have been helping me after the first few days of week 1, things have gone downhill since then. I think I am quite sensitive to drugs as I had poor reactions to other prescriptions in the past.
I have been very nauseated and dizzy for the past 5 days. Nausea the last 2-3 days is the worst its been in months if not years.
I’m thinking of stopping cold turkey and starting again in a few weeks.
Lastly, I have been using a pill slicer to cut the pills (they are coated pills and some say you shouldn’t do this). Perhaps this is preventing me from metabolizing the drug properly.
Any recommendations or words of wisdom?
