Can any one give me some help and advice.
I have been on Amitriptyline for about 4 years to help with hip and back pain
( since been told by a different Doctor i should never have been put on them in the first place )
I started off on 50 mg but found i was having a very dry mouth and a foggy head so
dropped down to 20 mg which i took for about 3 1/2 years.
I decided to stop taking them a few times as the pain never really went away but each time i had severe withdrawal so would always go back on them.
During last summer i decided i was going to come off them for once and for all.
I managed to drop down to 10 mg by September successfully .
The Severe Itchy skin started when i tried to go to 5 mg .
So this is when i went to the Doctors for help.
From October to December the Doctor set out a reduction plan from 10 mg to 5 mg and then finish off on 2.5 mg
I have now not taken Amitriptyline Since the 20th December
Unfortunately the Itchy skin all over my body has still not gone away.
I some times have a break of a few days from the Itching but always comes back.
I have tried Antihistamines and Fexofenadine 180 mg but they have not helped the Itch at all.
I have also had all my Bloods tested which came back fine along with food and allergies all clear.
I think i have just about covered everything.
I really just need some Positive Help or Advice Please.
The Itchy Skin is really affecting my general day to day life Sleeping, Work et
I look forward to hopefully hearing back from some one .
