I have been on Amitriptyline for 2 years. I am currently on 25mg to help with IBS. I want to try and cut down because it has made me put on so much weight. I have put on a stone in weight since I have been on them.
They are making me feel so depressed because of the weight gain.
I have tried cutting down from 25mg to 20mg. I can't believe such a small amount could have so many side effects. It's only a 5mg drop. But I felt really anxious and nervous, and I couldn't sleep. I couldn't cope so I gave up after a week and went back to 25mg.
My doctor's are absolutely useless they don't care one bit. And it's impossible to get an appointment to see a doctor.
I feel so alone and just need help coming off these evil tablets they are completely ruining my life. I absolutely hate being on them
How did anyone cut down and what is the best way to go about it. If takes a year to slowly come off these tablets. I don't care I just want to come off them
