Anitriptyline is a old anti-depressant that's been used for years for many different problems.The drug can be used as a sleeping aide and alot of times it's used for nerve pain.I don't think it has a high abuse rate.It's a fairly safe drug... Dave
Always consult a MD first
My doctor said it was not addictive at all.
Hi, sorry to disagree, i don't want to upset anyone, but i was told it can be addictive. I don't always rely on doctors opinions now since he told me tramadol aren't physically addictive, when i know full well that they are. I would agree that amitriptyline are generally safe, certainly less risky than a lot of other anti-depressants/anti-anxiety treatments
I don't or am not sure this is what one could say is one of those addictive type drugs, not like pain meds etc, these are used for certain types of headaches, (it's an old fashion used in the past drug that does not mean it isn't effective I am just telling you this for your information, also used for naseau, depression I think it does have a place in medicine some effects are easier on certain people than on others I think what I am saying is what works for one person won't always for another person best wishes
