Hi, my doctor has told me to reinstate my amitriptyline as i am having really bad withdrawal symptoms. Does anyone know how long after reinstating i should get relief. I was on the drug for 3 years and tapered and stopped 3 months ago and started reinstating 3 days ago. Thanks
When will Amitriptyline withdrawal symptoms go?

Because the Amitriptyline is out of your system now, you should expect to maybe get some induction side effects as you start it again, hopefully not the usual 4 weeks worth as your body has dealt with this medication before, but maybe a week or 2. Do you mind me asking what the withdrawals were like for you? I discontinued Amitriptyline early last year and it would be good to compare notes?
How much were you on? IF its withdrawal after a few days it should start lessening.
