I have taken Amitriptyline but my arms-hands would jerk, twitch. It was bad enough that I had a difficult time typing and writing. I wondered if anyone else had this and if it got better over time.
Yes this is a known possible side effect (see https://www.drugs.com/sfx/amitriptyline-side-effects.html ) that should be reported to your doctor right away.
I get some mild but annoying twitches but only if I try to stay awake too long after taking my dose.
