  • My migraines have reduced in frequency and duration so much that it feels like a miracle. My doctor titrated me up to 25mcg and I take it every night before I go to bed. Love it! It has given me my life back!

    Duration taken: A year or so
  • I'm using this to treat depression, and insomnia which was caused by my primary medication. I take half of a 5mg tablet before bed and it knocks me out. Anymore and I'm very tired the next day. It has worked perfectly for my needs.

  • Helped sleep at bedtime. Not as effective as Trazodone, but kept me asleep without waking up in pain.

  • 10mg per day for sciatica. Less pain but tortured by thirst (up to 20 liters water a day) & drowsy. Blurred vision, severe headaches, balance problems, clients thought I was drunk. Withdrawal: insomnia, nightmares, depression.

  • If I take amitriptyline in the morning, I am so tired that functioning and performing even small tasks is very difficult. But if I take it too late at night, I have really bad nightmares. So find a time that works best for you

  • If I take this too late in the evening, I'll have a really hard time waking up. If I take it a few hours before bed I'm usually okay and fall asleep no problem.

  • Works well for panic attacks and migraines, but comes with a lot of side effects. Dry mouth and drowsiness were most noticeable.

  • Taken for migraines and anxiety - worked great

  • I knew it was working already in the second week as my mood lifted after days of darkness - but it was the side effects of a dry mouth, being able to fall asleep faster and for longer and also I got sunburnt from lower tolerance to sunlight
