Started Saphris (asenapine) April 1st, doctor is having me just go off it and start Perphenazine/Amitryptline 4/50, is this good for psychotic thoughts?

Worrisome: It is always tricky to find the right mix, while symptoms are present. On the other hand, you have not been on this medication that long, so withdrawal will likely be tolerable. Still, better to add the medication first, then taper off of the old medication, in my opinion.

Will 75mg of amitriptyline cause an overdose, i took 50mg and another 25mg half hour later

Nevertheless, please be careful to take your medication as your doctor prescribes it. You may notice some unpleasant effects resulting from taking too much, like increased constipation, dry mouth, blurry vision, difficulty urinating and sedation. These should all pass. ...Read more

If you can't d/c the elavil, (amitriptyline) then you have to be aggressive about wt management: watching caloric intake and doing vigorous exercise.

Talk to your md if you feel you need it but have side effects. ...Read more
