Hello am having Bad withdrawal symptoms and was wondering if anyone could shed some light or help me in any way.
I have been taking amitriptyline 10mg for 11 months for my IBS. I started to experience long term side effects of really bad anxiety so I wanted to stop taking it. I did some searching and 10mg seemed safe to quit cold turkey. Boy was i wrong. The first 5 days I experienced extreme depression/anxiety and depersonalization. I wasn’t me at all.
Then on day 6 I started to have physical symptoms as well ; some nausea, dizziness/vertigo, loss of energy, loss of appetite, anxiety was still bad, and some chest pain which I think is connected to the anxiety.
I am currently on day 9 and am feeling a little better but this whole situation has me really scared so if anyone has gone through the same thing or knows how to deal with this or even how long it may last let me know please
