Can Amitriptyline used for migraine prevention cause mood disorder?
I have been taking Amitriptyline for around 12 months for migraine. At first i took 10mg but after a few weeks it stopped working so well. I was instructed to up my dose to 20mg by my GP. After a while same again and so now im taking 30mg. I have noticed I am suffering with bad anxiety at times and am sometimes unable to hold my temper. Also im struggling to get up for work. I’ve actually stopped taking them for around a week because I’m upset with the way they are making me feel. Its affecting my relationship..my partner feels i should be taking them as i used to take sertraline for depression and when i originally started taking these they seemed to work for this on their own. I’m not sure if im just rambling here i just dont know what to do because the migraines hospitalised me last time they got bad.
