Child aged 8. Consultant prescribed Amitriptilyne for pain. I wasn't present at consultation. Can I stop after 3 days. Dose 10mg.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Im just worried about withdrawal symptoms. I want to discuss all at further consultation, nut stop amitriptilyene for now. Is it safe to just stop 10mg after 3 days?

This is Dr. David

yes, you can stop amitriptyline after 3 days without tapering the 10mg dose.

your child shouldn't get withdraw symptoms.

why do you want to stop it?

it wasn't helping?
