Ed Lapierre,
I do not know of any instances of this occuring. However, prolonged use can cause a person to experience rashes, hives, and abnormal sweating. It can also make your body photosensitive, meaning that it can cause you to have skin irritations if you are exposed to sunlight for prolonged periods. These usually look like anything from a sun burn to bruises on the skin. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms due to taking Amitriptyline you, should tell your doctor. Also, it is not good to abruptly stop taking this medication so if you are thinking about stopping it, ask your doctor for help doing that. Hope this helps.
