Anyone taking Amitriptyline

Hi I don’t have a diagnosis yet but last week I was really struggling with pins and needles in my arm, leg and face. My GP prescribed amitriptyline. I was wary as I’ve heard horror storie’s of it. I’ve only taken 2 doses. Both nights I’ve slept well but woken up as normal. Today I’m absolutely buzzing. I’ve gone from hardly being able to get off the sofa last week to running round like mad today. Has anyone had this? It’s good to have some energy again but I worry about it and whether I’ll crash later.

I take 30mg of amitryptaline nightly. No problems what so ever. Don’t even get dry mouth anymore. I have no problem falling asleep and no problem waking up either. Been on them for 7 months. I wouldn’t worry. Hope that helps.
