When you have so much pain in the back and joints at night, so that it prevents you from sleeping, this medication helps you through the night.

Amitriptyline (25mg) for fibromyalgia (FM or FMS)

I started on this drug 20 years ago, when I couldn’t do anything anymore, no walking, no sitting, nothing. Started with 25mg and am now taking 75mg a day. Some days I can still get away with just 25mg. I can function normally and just do my thing.

Amitriptyline (25mg) for hernia

The pain clinic prescribed this for me after an acute hernia. It helps well, no pain any more, but I have lost some of the feeling in my left leg, but that's nothing to do with the medicine.

Amitriptyline (25mg) for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

I take 25 mg of amitriptyline because of IBS. The IBS gives me loads of stomach pains and almost daily diarrhoea. Since I've been taking this medicine I have less stomach ache and better stools. So this is where I really notice a difference. The stomach pains haven't completely disappeared but they are less severe. Also I haven't had any migraines since taking amitriptyline. Coincidence or not,...

Amitriptyline (10mg) for neuralgia

Prescribed for MS pain. Medicine works really well in this respect, but the side effects (particularly the dry mouth) are, at the moment, worse than the problem itself. So that's why I've decided to switch to Lyrica.

Amitriptyline (25mg) for neuralgia

A few years ago my pain levels in my neck and shoulders overnight increased. I wasn't getting enough sleep. It's difficult to keep the pain at bay. Amitriptyline is the perfect drug as far as this goes. But if you need to get to work and get up on time and be alert and awake it's quite difficult. I stopped taking it about a week ago and straight away I was waking up 2 hours earlier every day, f...

Amitriptyline (25mg) for emotional exhaustion / burnout

To start off with I didn't want to take this because of the pain and not being able to sleep properly! I had a breakdown in 2013 so I decided to ask for it after all. Very happy with it for both complaints, the only really annoying thing is having a dry mouth. So I always carry chewing gum and water with me.

Amitriptyline (25mg) for neuralgia

I had a complete nervous breakdown 2 1/2 years ago, a year after that I was diagnosed with ADHD and then after a year of total exhaustion, inexplicable pain in my chest muscles, neck muscles, back, occasionally short of breath and anxious. Started hyperventilating and ended up on speed. Physically, my muscles were extremely tense so I was prescribed redomex. It took a good month for the pain to...

Amitriptyline (25mg) for multiple sclerosis (MS)

The nerve pain from the MS has not been reduced enough with the combination of amitriptyline and lyrica. That's why I've tried other medicines to see if they work better for me.

Amitriptyline (10mg) for rheumatism

Been using this for 1.5 years now. Started on 25 mg. After 5 months reduced down to 10 mg and last week stopped altogether on the advice of my psychiatrist. I take it for pain and I've always slept well but the past 2 months I've been having hallucinations. Choice was to stop taking it or have a small dose of anti-psychotics alongside it. So I stopped. Nights aren't exactly great now because of...

Amitriptyline (10mg) for neuralgia

Was given this medicine in place of Lyrica. A lot fewer side effects. I think that, in agreement with my GP, the dose needs to be higher to cope with the constant pain in my left hand side as a result of the nephrostomy catheter.

Amitriptyline (25mg) for fibromyalgia (FM or FMS)

Using it for 3 months; increased from 1 x 10 mg tbl at night to 2 x 25 mg tbls. I have slept much better since taking this medicine but it doesn't give me any pain relief during the day. Personally few side effects, somewhat sleepy for the first few days and light-headed but that was over in a week. Tomorrow evaluation with the GP about the ongoing pain in the day...probably will have to switch...
