    You could be sensitive to the drug. All medication has side effects and there's no way it can suit everyone. You've probably been very unlucky.

      Hi Darren.  I am just coming off amitripyline after being on them for 13 years or so.... I have tachicardia with a resting heart rate usually over 100bps, and it has been high for many years.  I think my sleeping problems are because of the higher heartrate, and am now weaning off 20mg ami onto valerian (nitol), which is known to slow the heart rate down. So I am taking only 10mg ami and one nitol each eve for a few weeks then just nitol for a while to see what happens.So far I have had a couple of nights better sleep I think, but have been a bit tired and wired during the day, much to the amusement of my workmates.

      It must be scary though and not something you can control when it happens. If the side effect isn't listed on the drug information you can, as a patient report it through a website. Can't remember the address but easy to find if you Google it.
