Off Amitriptyline :-(

After fearing I had ON I went to my opticians, who told me eyes were fine and my dilated pupils and blurry vision were possibly a side effect form Amitripyline.

My doctor has now told me to come off them (was only on 10mg) so have just stopped them - last night.

Well I feel totally awful today, obviously couldn’t sleep (which I expected) but the twiching is worse back and legs are aching like mad. Although eyes still seem the same so far, however headache has gone!

I don’t know if this is just a side effect of coming off them, or whether they really were helping?

Has anyone else come off a small dose and had these effects?

Really fed up today, and am not back to the doctors until Tues.
