I take escitalopram 10 mg &amitriptylin 25mg to treat anxiety for long term till now this means drug addication?
R my meds addictive?: you've taken escitalopram (an SSRI) and Amitriptyline (a tricyclic antidepressant) for years for anxiety. Neither of these medications, nor any of the SSRIs or TCAs are addictive. So no, just because you've taken these two meds, both often rx'ed for anxiety, you are not addicted to them. Rather, it sounds like they have been effective. If you're having new sxs or side effects call your doc :) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No problems if i take as doctor prescribed for me for deppresion (10mg cepralex+25mg amitriptylin)daily forever?
Probably ok: There are no known long-term consequences of either of these medications. They've both been on the market for a number of years and seem just as safe now as when they were new.

These should all pass. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I'm to take 3-100mg tabs of amitriptylin @ night, but forgot. What should I do? Am shaky/nervous, but don't want to go to sleep. Take one now? R what?
Call your MD: 300mg of amitriptlyine is a high dose and should be carefully monitored. If you are confused about the dosage and timing don't guess, ask your prescriber. It would be unusual to start with 300mg. More likely this was to be increased slowly over several days. Call your prescriber and if can't be reached don't start with that dose. ...Read more
Wean Amitriptyline: Weaning from Amitriptyline should be doctor-directed; your dose of 25 mg is very low; if your doctor approves, you can take 25 mg alternating with 12.5 mg for about one-two weeks, then drop to 12.5 mg daily for one-two weeks, then stop it - but ask your doctor ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
