My doc put me on amitrypyline for migraines. I've been taking 10 mg per day at night and have been having lightheadedness. Common? Should I stop?
Common- don't stop:
Dizziness is the third most common side effect and given the other medications you are taking it is more likely. You should try not to stop it unless the symptoms are disabling and/or do not stop. If so, then speak with the prescribing doctor first before stopping.
The side effects have a tendency to dissipate if you can stick with it especially with a low dose. Good luck and happy holidays. ...Read more

Took Percocet for one after surgery and took my last dose last night. This morning I am feeling "foggy" and a little lightheaded. Is this normal?
Take care with opiod: Oxycodone and acetaminophen (Percocet) is a very powerful medication and you should take great care when taking it. I would not drive or do anything physically where you may fall when you feel like this. Call your doctor and communicate with him/her about how you are affected by Percocet. If your pain is well controlled, you may be able to step down to a less powerful narcotic or non-narcotic med. ...Read more
