I have taken 20mg of amitriptyline for 4 years. I reduced to 10mg due to severe anxiety and pins and needles in face. I still have the same symptoms, could I have developed an intolerance to the drug. I also feel really dizzy all the time and extremely depressed. Can anyone help please.
Was the reduction ordered by the Dr? If so, have you reported this? If not ordered by the Dr, then why?
50% is significant, the change may be causing this rather than intolerance. Also, how much time has elapsed since the reduction? If it's less than 3-weeks you may need a but more time.
