nightmares. I found 10 mg helped for al few weeks and then less effective. I tried to cut the mini 25 into half but got too much and zombie again? Did anyone find their dose less effective after a few weeks?
I took amitriptyline for about 2 years and found that it didn't take long to build up a tolerance to it. I started at 10 mg. at night and went up to 50mg in 6 months and I then found that I was very tired all the time. I then went back to 25mg. I always had very vivid dreams, and would wake up from them through the night.
It was helpful with IBS symptoms and migraines, but I just couldn't keep increasing the dosage because of the sedating side effects it had.
