I've been taking Amitriptyline to see if it improves frequent and severe migraine, having tried many other things in the past. Although I'm on the lowest dose, I have been feeling so tired, both mentally and physically, - its as though my metabolism has slowed right down, and weight is creeping on all the time. I am careful about my diet and have always stayed within a range of a few pounds. The only good thing is I am sleeping through the night, but wake up so tired than when I get up all I want to do is go back to bed for more sleep! My exercise used to be 2-3 swims (of an hour) a week and 1-2 power walks, but I just can't manage this. I've typically been quite sensitive to even low doses of meds in the past, maybe that doesn't help and I'm physically quite small. However I'm quite sure I'm not imagining it, its like exsisitng in a mental fog & its just not me, - I need to be able to function so I'm stopping witht them to see what this week is like. Can anyone else relate to this? Am also on thyroxine - 75mg daily.
