I wonder if anyone can help I have been on Amitriptyline for 4 years for anxiety and insomnia, last year I reduced the tablets from 20-10mg with no problem at all, I did this because I had a horrible vague confusion thing which lasted a week (the GP said it wasnt connected to the tablets!). I have been fine for 3 months until last week I started to have scary thoughts, it came out of no where, I immediately thought it was the tablets and started reducing the 10mg. Yesterday I went to my GP and of course she said my anxiety was getting worse and I should increase it again! the horrible thoughts have continued and I just dont know what to do, should I come off them altogether or increase the dose again??? I am of course anxious about insomnia setting in should I stop them, but on the other hand I am scared of these nasty thoughts and want them to stop. Any suggestions would be welcomed. Thanks.
