I feel very shaky inside my body and at times visible shakiness in hands. I was prescribed 50mg to help me sleep, which has helped with that. I have also a cough, sinus, cold sore and just feel like going to bed. I also take 1600 mg of Gabapentin and 40 mg of Fluoxitine a day and a variety of vitamins. I just think something is seriously wrong. I started researching this medicine to see if it is causing some of my symptoms. Today I woke up with very bad eye pain in one eye. Can anyone help me?
Since you started taking the Amitriptyline a few months ago that is not a side effect that I would expect. I have been on it for 18 years now also for sleep and have never had that problem. However if you have taken any cough/cold medicines that can happen as Amitriptyline does not mix well with most cold or sinus meds. Have you taken anything for your sinuses? The few things I can take I have to take a child's dose as the adult dose can cause problems.
I would write down the name and strength and how often you take it of everything you are taking including the vitamins and other OTC's and visit a pharmacist to see if there are any conflicts.
Go see your doctor too as it does sound like you have a sinus infection.
Hi, it could be that you are suffering an interaction from your medications. I would discuss this with your doctor asap. I have provided the link to the interactions checker for you to look through...
