Started Amitriptyline: insomnia


Go for it, no harm in upping the dose. Great that you have had no side effects. I’m considering going up a little more to 25mg


Lucky you to have no side effects, in which case I’d say go for it too. I was told to wait 4-6 weeks but listen to your own doctor and body.


Started 10mg Ami on Tuesday night and basically had trouble sleeping for two nights and terrible drowsiness in the morning. Last night much better and also taking 400mg gabapentin daily. Starting gabapentin last July had the same effect on me in the beginning so guessing your body needs to adjust to these medications.


Yes do persevere! Although the side effects for me from day one were never as bad as the symptoms it resolved or lessened.
