I've been taking 40mg of amitriptyline a day for nearly 7 months. I take it for anxiety, and feelings of dread that started out of the blue, at the start if the year.
It took quite a while for them to work consistently, I was very up and down for the first 3 months. But once they settled I felt fine again. Anxiety gone. Felt content and optimistic again. I enjoyed this for a couple of months then decided to wean myself off. Dropped dose to 30mg a day. Felt great for 2 weeks, then anxiety and dread came back.
Went back up to 40mg and within 5 days felt great again. Enjoyed another 2 months if this, and decided to wean off more slowly. So alternated 40mg and 30mg for 2 weeks. Was fine. Then switched to just taking 35mg every day. Within 5 days the anxiety and dread were back. Took 40mg last night and feel fine again today.
Why can't I even drop 5mg a day without symptoms coming back? My life is much better than at start if year. I don't understand it?
