I've been battling with finding the right dosage, had thought maybe my dose was too low so got up to 125mg. now I'm wondering whether this is to high as had brought no relief either. reduced from 125mg down to 75mg and I'm on day 13 of this. wanting to sleep more, but also very agitated, forgetful and emotional etc. should i not have levelled out at this stage? or am i still on too high a dose? any ideas or advice would be great
I am on 50 milligrams of anti triptyline. I find it very helpful with sleep. I also have fibromyalgia and it also helps with my serotonin level which helps the fibromyalgia. I find it a terrific pill. I used to be on 100 milligrams but was too tired so drop down to 50 milligrams.
em79; If it has been 13 days and you have dropped down that much I would leave it as it is,For now for at least a couple more weeks, And see if any of those problems go away which I'm sure they well if you were not having them before, Then if you still want to go down lower ask the doctor for the 50mg and try to leave it at that. Or see the doctor and see if you might want to change to something else. But think hard many times when we are on a medication for a while we forget how much it is really helping us and then go back on it and it never seems to be the same.Also, it could be when you get the medication down to 50mg the doctor could add something else for the sleep many people after long term use have gotten better results this way. Good luck
