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.
Hello yes had arm tremors jerks, also cold sweats, Vomiting, felt dizzy, could not sleep and this med did nothing for my back and muscle pain,
only added more trouble. But Ive read reviews on different sites that it has helped for others, just not for me. I hope that helps good luck.
