Anyone in here use amitriptyline? This is what happened to me. The doctor took me off zoloft. Told me to take one 10mg of amitriptyline for one week, second week, two, third week three, and fourth week four. Well, the third week after taking three a night for four days, I was awful. My eyes wouldn't focus, I could hardly walk, and generally felt ill. I called him and he told me to stop them and drink lots of water to flush it out of my system. He said that three was a small dose and he couldn't understand why that happened. Who knows with us. Right?
