I was on 10mg of amitryptiline since May 2018, in September I agreed with my doctor to go down to 5mg of amitriptyline (I cut the pill in half) as I was constantly eating, feeling drowsy and always feeling tired and demotivated. This week I decided to cut the pill into quarters (2.5 mg) and have been taking this the past 2 days. I thought that would be a good way to taper off. But I haven't slept at all last night I'm Just lying here. My limbs feel tight and my heart is beating. I now realise that maybe I should have kept taking 5mg and alternate days of not taking it for 2 weeks. I'm. Not sure what to do but I'm going to speak with my doctor tomorro. I'm scared because I don't want to suffer with insomnia and I have heard that coming off amitriptyline is hard to do and it takes ages to return to normal sleep pattern. Any ideas? I don't want to rely on any other addictive medication
