Amitryptiline and high blood pressure

Posted , 6 users are following.

I've been on this for nerve pain related to tmj for about 6 months, just 20 mg at night. I still enjoy wine but despite a healthy ish diet, my blood pressure has increased dramatically and I have been told that I now have to take ramipril as well. Has anyone else suffered in this way?

    been on amitrytiline for a couple of months now for never pain as well now taking 20 mg. had my blood pressure taken the other day and it has not effected mine. Just have dry mouth but if I was going to take a wine would not take it then just because of possible side effects of being drowsy.

    I have been on Amitryptiline now since February, I was just diagnosed on Tuesday of having advanced TMJD i was taking 50mg but the Dental Surgeon wants me on 75-100mg in the evening. I was told there is "no quick fix" by him and have also been passed over to a Myotherapist to help treat the TMJD.

    I have not experienced high blood pressure but i do get heart palputations and a dry mouth. I also have diazepam prescribed as i have anxiety also.

    How long have you had your TMJ?
