    I promise those side effects will pass Magic. They do come back for a few days if you higher your dose though. The dry mouth thing is the worst but it's more annoying than bothersome I found. 10mg is such a tiny dose so you should be ok in no time. do you ever get a blurred vision as that is another really bad side effect of Amitriptyline? It really helped my anxiety but have been up to as much as 150mg a night. Going through withdrawal at the mo as my GP cut me by 75mg 4 weeks ago and also took me off Lorazepam after 5 years. But doing ok mostly....but yer, promise the dry mouth will pass xx

    Yes, it gave me a very dry mouth which was worse when waking up.

    I took amitriptyline last year and dry mouth is a definite side effect. Amitriptyline is an "anti-cholingeric" medication and all meds in that class can cause the same group of side effects that includes things like dry mouth and fast heart rate. It was only bad for me for around a week or so after starting taking it but I imagine it could stick around longer and get worse if you up your dose.

    Amitriptyline can give you these side affects, Iím on 20mg and started on 10 for 1 week going up to 20. I felt like a zombie, dizzy, Panicked, tired, dry mouth, sickly but I also suffer anxiety and panick and I think that made the symptoms worse! I started exercising more and using mints for the dry mouth, as I started to exercise I took the dose down to 15 and this took away all of the symptoms.
