I have been put on Amitriptyline, starting off really low at only 5 mg as I have severe anxiety and depression. I am now on 20 mg. Have been on that dose for 6 days. I know I need to be on a higher dose for it to have an impact on the depression and hopefully will get there slowly.
I have definitely had the grogginess qnd tiredness the following day and try to take it early evening. However I think im also experiencing heightened anxiety....it almost feels like nervousness in my tummy and feel a bit restless and agitated first thing in the morning . Am I right in saying that people who are being treated for anxiety disorders experience it getting worse at the beginning of treatment???
I hope somebody has had some good experiences with amitriptyline and can reassure me its going to get better.
