I am in total anxiety attack mode- day after day and i have had a very bad patch for a few months. I have started Amitriptyline and even with a very very low dose I recon the attacks have got far worse. GP / Psychiatrist want me to continue but I think I may be alergic to it or it is not suiting me..anyone else found this high high increase in anxiety attacks and headaches on it? Please help. I just dont want to loose my job or end up in hospital but it is getting so difficult to cope.Friends of mine swear by it and say I should continue taking it.
