I have been presecribed Amitriptyline 10mg x 5 to take at night. I suffer muscle stiffness and pain and have been taking this for two years. Recently the tablets have been changed to a blue coating (E132 I think). This has caused an allergic reaction. Can you supply this drug without the blue coating. Thank You.
We don't sell anything. Your pharmacist has to either get a different kind in for you or you have to change pharmacies. The pharmacy suppliers probably changed who they are getting it from which change the color.
If the pharmacy is unable to get the amitriptyline you need maybe think about switching medications. I take pamalor (nortriptyline) and it works the same as the amitrip and they are 50 mg white capsules. Talk to your doctor about it.
