Hi all, hope you’re all doing ok.
I had to come off of Amitriptyline (100 mg every night) when they found I have a heart problem just before Christmas. I had to wean off over a 2 week period (which is very quick... but it was on advice of cardiologist) and I took the last pill on Christmas Eve.
So... nearly 3 months later... and I’m still feeling pretty awful. They put me on 15 mg of an antidepressant to help.. Mirtazapine... which at least helps me sleep. But I’m now beginning to realise that basically this how I feel is how my body usually feels but without the help of Amitriptyline! My body fees very heavy and clumsy and aches pretty much all the the time!
Just wondering if anyone else has experience of coming off Ami (which I was on for about 14 years). Due to the heart problem I’m now very limited in what med’s I can take. Most frustrating!
Sending love to all,
