Withdraw help for Amitriptyline

Amitriptyline is a tricyclic antidepressant that was approved in 1961 and is widely used today for depressive disorders, anxiety, migraines, eating disorders, bipolar disorder, neuralgia and insomnia. Amitriptyline blocks the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the central and peripheral nervous system, and it's this action that contributes to the numerous side effects, including weight gain, changes in appetite, nausea, constipation, nervousness, muscle stiffness, blurred vision and urinary retention.

Amitriptyline also exerts its action on Serotonin and Norepinephrine and these two neurotransmitters also affect the adrenal ‘flight-or-fight’ system, dream sleep, mood, memory and cardiovascular function.

Amitriptyline does have a discontinuation syndrome yet is not considered addictive. Amitriptyline dosages should be gradually reduced to help minimize Amitriptyline withdrawal symptoms. Let us help you.

What is Amitriptyline?

(Elavil, Endep, Tryptizol, Laroxyl)

    Amitriptyline is the most widely prescribed Triyclic Antidepressant and is prescribed for depression, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, migraines, eating disorders, bipolar disorder, neuralgia and insomnia. It should be gradually withdrawn over at least three months.  Because Amitriptyline blocks the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine in the central and peripheral nervous system there are numerous side effects. It acts primarily as a Serotonin Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitor and was approved by the FDA in 1961 for the treatment of major depression. However, the British National Formulary notes that Amitriptyline is particularly dangerous in overdose and therefore does not recommend its use for depression.
