im just scared 2 take these new meds amitriptyline 10mg of wat side effects it wil av which wil the heighten my anxiety?any advice
Well, I've been on both, and actually I am still on Citralopram. I am not finding the same with it as you.
As for the Amitriptiline, well, that's one of the ol'-fashioned a/d's.
I did not find it useful.
I did have side effects.
I was taking it, not as an a/d, but as an aid to help with sleep when I was trying to get off the benzos I've been on for years.
I took it for less than three (3) weeks, and in that short period of time I put on over 15 pounds. I was not happy about that.
It didn't help with my sleep, not at all. In fact, in a way it made matters worse. It exacerbated my restless leg by 20-fold, and just gave me overall heebee jeeebies.!
Since I wasn't taking it as an a/d, I don't know how it will work.
I feel pretty confident there must be newer a/d's which have less severe side effects? Maybe not.
Hope this wee bit of self experience is helpful to you
