Tylenol PM or Melatonin does absolutely nothing for me. The only thing that helps me is ambien and sometimes it doesn't get me to sleep. I just got perscribed amitriptyline. Do you feel this will give me the same side effect as ambien and help me go to sleep or for all you insomnia people, like myself, do you feel this drug won't be that beneficial for me?
What strength are you being prescribed, if you don't mind me asking? It works great for me. I am an insomniac and what a nightmarish ride it has been, too. But I now take 1mg Ativan and 50mg Amitriptyline.
I take both of these around 6pm-7pm. If I take them too late, I am a groggy mess in the morning.
Be safe, live well for the best and rest of your life.

I am trying to taper off 13 years of Ambien. Do I need amitriptyline to build up to help with sleep?
