Hi am still on amitriptyline my current dose is 30mg. I have taken tegretol for my neurolgia which made me feel horrendous. I then got put onto amitriptyline. I have not been on any other medications. My amitriptyline helped i think i also got a brace to stop me grinding my teeth and a combination of both i think helped me become sympton free with neuolgia.Now its starting up again.
The neuolgia was a lot better so they lowered it..When it was at 50mg they told me to take it alternate days but then i couldn't sleep and was crying all the time.They then told me to take 50mg all the time as they thought i was depressed as well but there wasn't much point putting me on another drug. Over time i felt a lot better I got put down to 40mg which again i felt fine at. I then put myself down to 30mg about eight months ago which the doctor don't know about. I have felt fine up until recently. But what with moving no doctor has requested me to see them for eighteen months and that was just an intial check.
At this point, it would be appropriate to discuss these options with your doctor, who can prescribe an appropriate medicine and dose for depression.
Where i am i have not seen a gp for eighteen months and i feel very much isolated.the gp don't know me or what exactly has happened in my past. its so hard because i honestly feel like i cant cope with any more. How much can i cope with i cant i give up.The nail in the coffin would be if the pain in my face came back because that pain that the worst pain i ever had and at times a lot of time i wanted to die. the pain was too much. i want to live a life and at 28 i feel like i am done with it all.
