Iv been diagnosed with crohns disease for a couple of years now and around 6 months ago I was prescribed amitriptyline by my consultant for the pain and sleepless nights
After a couple of weeks of takeing 10mg I started getting suicidal thoughts really badly so contacted my ibd nurse who in return had a word with my consultant who said I they are doing that he must come off them
However yesterday I had an appointment with him and he just had a go at me because my treatment isn't working (infliximab now on entivyo) and he said he didn't believe me that amitriptyline causes depression or suicidal thoughts
Because it is used to treat depression at a higher dose. I am adiment it was amitriptyline because as soon as I stopped taking them the thoughts went away has anyone else had or heard of this I'm going to Wright to my consultant and let him know
How much he effected me by having a go yesterday and I want to love him wrong with some evidence to go along with my letter
