I was recently prescribed 10mg Amitriptyline to help with my Anxiety and it's symptoms.
I suffer with numerous anxiety symptoms, the most distressing ones being Nausea and vomiting (which results in a lack of appetite.
I've tried numerous antidepressants over the past five months, the majority of them making my anxiety symptoms worse and causing more nausea.
I've taken Amitriptyline for two days, i'm currently tapering off Mirtazapine as well at the moment (as instructed by my GP).
So far I haven't noticed any real effects, I've heard that Amitriptyline is very sedating. But the first night I was wide awake, last night I managed to get some sleep. But I didn't feel any real sedation.
My nausea is still present, with a lot more churning and discomfort.
My doctor informed me that if I still feel sick by Friday I should start taking two tablets (20mg in total).
Is it normal to feel like this when first taking Amitriptyline? I've heard it's supposed to be quite fast acting.
