  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Been an insomniac all my life. Very little results from anything else.

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

    Woman
    Depression
  • After trying 3 SSRIs and an SNRI I tried this medication. It was great. Slept brilliantly. Helped with my back pain too. Didn't have too many side effects, mainly drowsiness in morning for about a week. Bit of weight gain bit if you are aware you can try and control that.

    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

    Depression
  • 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.

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

    Man
    Depression
  • 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
