Hi, iv just started on amitriptyline given to me in hospital to help with pain. i didnt want to take them but i finaly agreed on a low dose, he started me on 10mg but over 6 days hed increased the dosage 3 times. Im reluctant to take them now as i wasnt consulted about increasing the dosage, i feel he presured me into them & was very crafty in uping the dose so quickly. I have mild asthma & since taking the tablets im having very bad trouble breathing going from using my inhaler a few times a week to about 8 times a day, i have palputations & although i only take a tablet at night i feel very tired & drowsy the following day. Im going to try reduce the dosage a bit & if i still feel the same im going to stop taking them, after all if you read the side effects on the packaging they could make you feel a lot worse than you did before you took them.
