I've been taking Amitriptyline for a few years and would like to come off of them. They have been great for my migraine prevention - just 4-5 in 4 years or more. I would like to come off of my low dose of 10mg (2x5mg) each evening. Since around Christmas I have reduced to 5mg with no ill effects so I tried cutting the 5mg in half. The tablets are coated in a film which I'm wondering is to make the drug release slowly so when I cut them I'm upsetting that system. However, I took 2.5 for a week, was ok so I stopped completely on Saturday. Not too bad first night. I was wakeful but went back to sleep easily enough. The last two nights have been awful. Not able to go off to sleep so when morning comes I'm exhausted. Has anyone else withdrawn from Amitriptyline? Should I take the half tablet for a lot longer before stopping? Thanks for any input.
