What is amitriptyline?

Amitriptyline is used to treat symptoms of depression
You can look the medication on the web for information as always ask your doctor with your questions
My mother in law told me to take this years ago for anxiety and panic as she's been taking it for like thirty years but my psychiatrist didn't jump on it when I went to him with a list of possible drugs for me to try. Ssris don't really work long term for me so that was why I had thought amitriptyline would be worth a shot. I'd love to know how it's feeling for you. Best of luck!
