I started amitriptyline 8 nights ago, at 10mg. I take it around 8pm or so, and go to bed around 10-10:30. I have also increased my dosage to 30mg.
I am taking it for nerve pain, and sleeping issues (length/quality).
With the meds, up until last night I find myself waking up frequently after 2am hour. Last night I was in a weird state where I was asleep, but it was light. I wake up exhausted (I have been without the meds too, not sure why but it takes a few hours for me to come around )
What I am trying to figure out is amitriptyline is causing these issues, and if so, is there a possibility they will stop as my body gets used to it? Or is this a clear sign that it isn't for me and messes up my sleep? Many people use this to sleep with no issues, and although I get tired and fall asleep fast, I seem to be waking up in the middle of the night more so than before without the drug.
