Hi Kim, the answer would probably be yes; it does seem harsh on the liver. Probably due to it's metabolic pathway in the Liver.
"Amitriptyline hydrochloride should be used with caution in patients with impaired liver function."

I hope that was helpful? If you are concerned, see your doctor for a liver function test.
Take care, Steve.
