Im wanting to hear others experiences of this drug. Im starting to suspect that Ive been having a very slow decline since Ive been taking the Amitripyline? Im not sure but its looking that way .... and I noticed this also before the OD. Usually after Ive had someone to my house I will be recovering from it the next day but okay by that next night... but I ended up sleeping 12 hrs two nights straight after having having the home help person here. Im noticing Im being impacted for longer time periods after any exertion. The past two weeks.. at times Im finding I can only be awake for 7-8 hrs in day. Im concerned and wondering if the amitripyline is the cause? (I though havent taken it last two nights due to the hypersomnia so it should of been out of my body.. so wondering if it has given me like a decline in my whole ME state). Im kind of worried due to how bad a decline even a slow one of my base line could make me, due to how severe Ive been in the past. (I havent stopped my trial of it as thou I know it dont do anything for me at 10-30mg dose nor at a very high dose... when ive taken a 50mg dose.. im a bit unsure if its doing something or not). My other question is.. how fast after one takes it for sleep should it take to notice the affects of it? 1.5 hrs??
