Sophia85 Posted March 5, 2007 Share Posted March 5, 2007 I went on 25mgs of Amitriptyline a few nights ago. I started on it for nerve pain in my left leg. I'm also on Abilify (30mgs), Cymbalta (60mgs), Topamax (300mgs), Ibuprofin (800mgs PRN), Ativan (1mg PRN), and Tylenol 3 (1 tablet every 4 hours PRN). They warned me that the Cymbalta and the Amitriptyline might interract but they said they were going to try me on both of them together anyway as the Cymbalta is managing my depression remarkably well and they are hoping to get the pain under control with the Amitriptyline. Since I've been on the Amitriptyline all I've wanted to do is lie in bed and sleep. It is right now 3:30 in the afternoon and I'm still in my pajamas. I have absolutely no motivation to do anything but stay in my pajamas. Today I slept until 10:30 got up and putted around the house until noon then layed down and took a nap until 2:30 then got up only because the VA hospital called and woke me up. Now it is 3:30 and I'm considering another nap. This is fine this week as it is spring break but next week I'm back in school and I can't be doing this. So someone please tell me is this side effect going to disappear or am I on the wrong drug? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
