    I had similar effects, but felt ill. I only lasted 4 days then gave it up. Putting up with pain at present, but feel better in myself.

    Hi, I stopped amitriptyline after 2 weeks they caused ringing in my ears and it still hasn't stopped after 4 days without them. The GP said they weren't right for me.

      Are you still having problems after 4 days of stopping it ? Have you seen your doctor again ?

      Still ringing Marshall. I went to a party last night and the loud music didn't help. My hearing feels a lot more sensitive too. Very strange!!

      That's not good My hearing has changed since I started too more sensitive as you said

      CBT may help ask your GP if gives you any more trouble

      It's not bothering me too much to be honest. I just thought it would have gone by now if it was the amitriptyline

    My experience is the effect was vile - I slept well but woke feeling I'd been hit over the head and sore also very bad mood, tired, groggy and they they had not done anything good for me at all.  I was given them as a pain killer but the pain seemed worse.
