I have had to come off Trimipramine because the NHS are phasing it out owing to cost issues. My doctor put me on Amitriptyline. I was fine on 25 and 50mg, but as soon as I went up to 75 I started to experience a delay in urinating. That was a week ago and I still have the problem. I also experience an almost constant urge to empty my bladder, which means I sit for ages on the loo when I don't really need to go. This is a separate problem.

I am in a right state because as well as all this I am now unmedicated for my anxiety which is making me really ill: nausea, shaking, sweating, muzzy/ill-feeling head, chills.

I really want to take the escitalopram my doctor has prescribed, but am worried it could cause the same problem. I'm seeing my psychiatrist on Wednesday. I'm also seeing a urologist tonight.

Please can anyone comment or help. I've never felt this ill.
