I was prescribed 10mg amitriptyline to treat visceral hypersensitivity which is a stomach condition. I have only taken 3 pills so far but last night I experienced a really scary effect. First day I was just really exhausted despite having slept for 9 hours the night before. I read online to take it around 12 hours before you need to be up in the morning to reduce grogginess so the next night I took it a bit earlier in the evening around 8. Around 12 I decided to lay down and try to sleep. Almost immediately it was like my mind started to fall asleep even before my body while I was still in the process of moving around a bit. I opened my eyes and in the darkness of my room I was seeing patterns of different images. I was understandably terrified and half asleep. I sat up in bed and turned all the lights on which stopped the hallucination but it took me quite a while to calm down and go back to sleep afterwards. Tonight after experiencing the tiredness all day again I took the pill again. I am waiting for the doctor to call back and tell me what I should do ( maybe if my body gets used to the pill the tiredness and weird hallucinating will stop?). I was wondering if anyone had experienced hallucinating even on such a low dose of the drug, and also if the tiredness fades away or if it stays forever on the drug? any help or comments are appreciated.
