I have been taking 10mg of amitriptyline for Insomnia, for a month. It's helping with sleep, but has caused constipation. I am hoping my body adjusts soon. I would be interested to hear from others who have had this side effect, as I don't want to stop taking this drug, but am not prepared to take laxatives long term.
Amitriptyline side effects.

Never caused constipation with me. I find it hard to empty my bladder which is annoying. I am on 40mg for pain. I also have to take it a good 4 hours before bed otherwise I cant sleep. Otherwise though I highly recommend it. I was suicidal before this drug.
