I've been on amitriptyline 10mg x1 at bedtime for 2.5 weeks now. If i see dr., and want to taper off, what withdrawal effects from this dosage?
Very minimal: If you listed the dose correctly at 10 mg, you are taking virtually a homeopathic dose, that is a very minimal amount. At this level, no need to taper, just stop. Talk with you doctor about this, but the noted dose is far too small to help any of your problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can withdrawal from amitriptyline cause generalized itching? Doc cut my dosage in half starting 4 nights ago. Woke up itching today.
Only if its: If the Amitriptyline and it's antihistamine effect was blocking some allergy prior to the decrease.

Awful withdrawal symptoms from amitriptyline. Tapered from 75mg - 65mg. First 2 nights, fine. 3rd night - panic, nausea, faint. Can diazepam help?
Not first recourse: Diazepam (valium) hangs around the system a long time. Exchanging a need for Amitriptyline for a need for valium isn't a great bargain! such a small dosage drop shouldn't cause withdrawal--unless you have a threshhold at 70 mg. What to do depends on why the med and why the taper. But i would have your doc help you do without a benzodiazepine like valium, except short-acting and short-term. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Or pour boiling water over freshly sliced organic ginger & steep at least 5 min. ...Read more
