I took amitriptlyn around 10 months ago for tension headaches I was only 10mg. The headaches went after a week so I stopped them. They have not returned. I now been getting really bad aches and pains in my arms (its because I sleep on them) I don't want to keep relying on pain killers. Do you think I should start them again? I am an anxious person too so I am wondering if it would help with that? :) thanks.

Harry.

Also is it wise to take it just before bed or can I take it any time of the day?

hi
I took amitrypline for 10yrs, and spent most of that time trying to get off them, personnally i feel they are a cheap horrible drug... they do help with headaches, nerve pain, and depression at high doses... highest i took was 100mg a day- but last five years i was only 50mg a day, then down 25mg a day... always taken at night, as they are a sedative... ive been off them 5 months and wouldnt go back... they made me have alot more symptons than they actually helped...

As far as I can remember I just had a dry mouth felt really tired and bit grumpy, worst one was waking up in the middle of the night and my eyesight was gone for 10 seconds pretty scary ha.

You didnt take them for very long though, so were probably just experiencing the side effects of when you start taking them... after 10yrs on them, i feel im finally awake!! ive been drugged and sedated for years!
