I am a 51 year old male with spinal stenosis. My doctor decided to take me off 150 mg's of Amytriptyline (I've been on this dose for 20 years) and start on 30 mg's of Temazepam. Currently my meds are MS Contin 60 mg. 3 x day. Alprazolam 1 mg. 3 x day, Flomax .4 mg. 1 x day, General 4 tbsp 1 x day, Lipitor 40 mg. 1 x day, and Mirtazapine 30 mg. 1 x day. The Temazepam, Alprazolam, and Mirtazapine are producing the same great effect for sleeping. I have been off the Amytriptyline for 6 days now (and on the Temazepam), but I literally feel like there is a elephant sitting on my head, exhausted, have a horrible headache, on and off sweating, and irritable. Can anyone please shed some insight? I suspect it's withdrawal from the Amytriptyline, but not sure. And if so, what is the best advice to get past this and how long it will take. Thanks in advance for any information that anyone my have... Michael
