Hi, i like many others on here are trying to wean off amitriptyline and are looking for advice and positive stories. Please can anyone share their experiences to help me as i am currently struggling now i have got to 2.5 mg. What withrawal symptoms did you have ? and do you have any advice re helping these symptoms. How long after stopping did your withdrawal symptoms persist? Thanks in advance.

    Hi

    At .25 mg you can say you are nearly over with the weaning off process. When I reached to 50mg , and with pain and anxiety a lot reduced, all I wanted was to get out of the side effects trap. So i started reducing the dosage. Come along were cold symptoms lasting on, incerased anxiety, shallow sleep...in the middle I started gabapentin. I don't like this medicine much either.

      Amanda I am on 10mg and while on 20mg, gabapentin was added so that it would replace amitryptlin with the same effects. I was going to ramp it up while fazing out ami but I am still lingering

      Cheers
