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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It will take time, but very doable. If having problems, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

What do you mean ok?: If you have to get to work, or you have children to take care of (or other responsibilities) spending the day in bed would not be "ok." if a person is drinking enough on a regular basis to cause hangovers, then that person is drinking too much.

Sounds simple, but if you stick to it, you will retrain your internal clock. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
