Timing is everything: Not sure why your are taking amitripyline. Is this for pain, migraine, or depression? Tell your doctor that the drug is making you drowsy and ask if you should take it 1-2 hours BEFORE bedtime. This may help you out quite a bit. Best of luck! Dont use coffee to stay awake. Change the timing of the dose.
