Hi guys. When i'm at home i have started taking my 20mg dosage of amitriptyline at 7pm which usually knocks me out by 10pm.
My problem however, is when i'm at work & i do work more lates than earlies - something i can't change i'm afraid as it is my rota. I work with vulnerable adults & once/twice a week i do sleep-ins in the house. This is no problem as i can still take my dosage at 7. The problem i have is my other shifts which don't require me to sleep in work as i finish at either 9 or 10pm. I then take my tablets at either 7.30 or 8pm & it involves a drive home which in fairness does not bother me. But i wake up the next morning with heavy tired eyes as well as a vibrating head whenever i get up from sitting down or walking/turning round.
I have been on amitriptyline for 3 months now. I would welcome any feedback/advice. Do people think i need to go back to my GP or should i give it more time.
