  • Perceived effectiveness for Depressed mood: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Nerve pain (neuralgia): Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 50 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: When I first began this medication it would help me sleep or rather help me feel sleepy. It no longer does that for me, even after the increase. I know it has helped my depression, I was on the verge of suicide before the increase. Now I am more positive and I feel better, if only it would help me sleep. The dry mouth is constant, I have become accustomed to it, I keep hard candy around, to me it helps with stimulating saliva.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Mouth sores (ulcers), Grogginess, Dry mouth (xerostomia)

Advice & Tips: When I first started the medication I had horrible dry mouth. I solved it by chewing gum, it seemed to stimulate the saliva. I am also drinking half a pot of coffe to wake up in the morning, which I don't really care to do, but I have to work so I do what I have to do. Also I am taking the generic which I get at walmart because of the $4 dollar deal which this medicine actually cost me $3.83 a month!

Advice & Tips: I gave it up because of weight gain and I was pre diabetic and needed to reset my priorities.It's great to be awake in the morning but the pain level I'm experiencing has gone up. I have not been taking Amitryptyline for many months and find that I suffer from more pain than I did before which I treat with analgesia , stretching and exercise.
