Hi Amanda

I have been on Amitriptyline 10mg for about 3 years now and I take 2 tablets at bedtime (they seem to act as a muscle relaxant with me) . I also take Propanalol (again for about 3 yrs) I take 3 x 10mg daily. Apart from the odd fluttering through my body and a bit of lightheadedness which both go away if I dont add to the fear I am Ok on them. The only thing I find is if I have to get up through the night I can be a bit disorientated and I can get quite thristy.

They have helped me tremendously and they are both a low dosage.

Hope this has been of some help - Take care for now
