I have recently been put on amitriptyline for medical reasons and I have found my mood to be quite dramatically changing and I feel really groggy, slow and tired. I am on a low dose and haven't been on them long, I was just wondering is this normal and has anyone else had any experience with this drug? I'm a bit worried how this will further effect my uni attendance, but I don't really want to talk to my advisor.  Thank you Smiley

I was on them years ago...evil stuff for me so came off them very quickly. Hope someone can be more helpful. Can you speak to your doc?

Hope it wasn't too bad Faith! I have to go back next week due to blood tests anyway, so I might speak to her then. It's really weird, like I didn't really expect to feel different, I just feel so like detached and slow and tired and stuff, it's not enjoyable haha. I think I did read that it was a side effect, but yeah.

Thank you Faded, hopefully it will this time!

Just wanted to reassure you a bit, I have been on it for 3 years for depression starting at 200mg and now at 50mg- at 200mg there was a grogginess but it did get better and the lower my dose the better. But even on on the high dose I got used yo it. I would say give it chance. Hope it gets better for you   littlehug1

I was on it for 2 weeks to help me sleep but I became actively suicidal. Please be careful with it. Take care

Thank you guys Smiley I feel really tired and slow today, more so than yesterday. I'm also getting thoughts about harming which I haven't had for a while, but this might just link to the tiredness. I might just speak to my GP when I go back, it has helped with sleeping though
