Hi all remember when I wrote this.
Well I sat down and decided I was going to wean myself off the 75mg of Amytriptiline a day I was on.
I was very wary to be honest as I have been on them years and had an allergic reaction years ago and had to stop them. I was in agony and thought I would crack up with the pain. I was even given (after a huge argument with the GP who didn't want to listen to the specialist at the hospital) morphine patches and they did nothing! I thought I would go mad untill a new GP said try them again and see how you go and I was fine weird huh?
So when I decided I wanted to come off them I was dreading the pain coming back and hitting me round the back of the head.
Well here I am nearly off them, I am on 1 every other night till Sunday then it will be none!!! To be honest I feel OK. Apart from extra fatigue and pain it is OK. I can manage this with my painkillers and hot water bottle. I am assuming it will get worse but maybe it wont?!?
I am praying I can cope without the meds as the alternative is scary and I would rather be in pain than lost altogether.
Have any of you tried to come off meds and how did it go?
Thanks so much for reading (if you did)
