Ive been on 10mg amitriptyline once a night for about 5 months for ibs symptoms while ive been on this medication ive found myself feeling very low very tired and started getting anxiety and panic attacks from bowhere which id never ever experienced before and I heard and read online that amitriptyline can cause this. So I had my last ami 4 days ago and I already feel better within myself and have my first panic free day without needing a propranolol tablet for the first time in absolutely ages . Has anyone else had experience with this? Tia :)
I take the amitrip for sleep 10mg. I am so gald you wrote in. I am trying to get off the amitrip because I kept thinking it may be causing me more anxiety, especially when I wake up. I am also fatigued.
Did you taper down or just quit? Did you have any withdrawal symptoms?
I am glad you are feeling better. I hope there are better meds for you IBS.
I was prescribed to take 10-30mg amitriptyline every night to help with post infectious ibs symptoms. It has helped so much but not without side effects. At first I had very vivid and disturbing dreams, I'm really drowsy until about midday and I have gained weight. If it forget to take one I get mood swings too. I reallllly want to come off this now as it has been over 9 months - any tips/advice/survival strategies?
