Im currently on amitriptyline for my ibs and severe stomach cramps, the first 3 days were great but it was downhill after that, i'm continuing to take it in the hope that i'll be better, how long was it before anyone started finding releif?
You did not say what dose you are on. How many mgs are you taking a day? I have found that anything less than 30mg is not effective for me and at some times I need to take more depending on what I have been eating and my stress levels.
Also taking a calcium supplement seems to make the amitriptyline more effective just do not take them at the same time as a vitamin or other supplements will interfere with the absorption of the amitriptyline.
