I have been on Amitriptyline 10mgs for eight years. The latest news about the connection between Amitriptyline  and dementia is scary. Would like to get other users view on this.

    I have tried also, can get to 5mgs and then all hell  breaks loose. But last night I chipped a tenth off and am trying again. If I can get to 5mgs, will stay there a long long time, like even six months. Then I will try to get some liquid to get off the rest.

      Hi charline , it took me 11 months to get off of 10 mg. I first went to 5 mg and like you all hell hit, awful symptoms. I ended up getting Amitriptyline in liquid. Get off of it slow, you will do it xx

      Hi Amanda, I am now struggling having reduced to 10 mg, and am nibbling a bit off that. What were your symptoms during the 11 months if it is ok to ask you.. And what are the benefits of the liquid over the tablets.
