I am on 20mg.every night for legs problems. I also am on 25Mg.Xanax.
Dora Have you taken the Amitriptyline lone enough to see if it is going to work for the leg cramps or nerve pain. Sometimes a month or so anyway.Many people start to stop and find out it is working better than they thought and have to go back on it. But if your sure you may just drop it to 1/2 the dose your taking now for 7 to 10 days then try and go every other day after that for another 10 days then stop. Some can just go off of it faster but it is not anything like the newer medications that are much harder to get off of and if you have problems at all call the doctor.
