Hello. I have read on this forum that the first few days to weeks on a medication such a amitriptyline can cause symptoms to flare up and some people may have to deal with side effects as well.
My mom has started amitriptyline and made it up to 20mg (5/28) and honestly, for the first few days after the increase she was doing better, def noticeable difference. She is far from healed/cured but we were feeling optimistic the last few days that she was, perhaps, heading in the right direction. However, yesterday, out of NO where, she just crashed big time with worst dizziness, lethargy, fatigue etc., and this is the worst we have seen her in weeks.
Any insight to this will be appreciated! Thank you.
