Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there,I am an experienced Medical Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
You should try mirtazapine 7.5 to 15 mg at bedtime if not tried before instead of amitriptyline.
Mirtazapine dose can be increased to 30 mg if needed.
Did you have a sleep study done to check for sleep apnea?
Ok in that case, you will need to be tried on a different regimen given that you are having problem maintaining your sleep.
Zolpidem 5 to 10 at bedtime should be the next option.
