Amitriptyline Side Effects

Amitriptyline Side Effects

The Alternative to Meds Center recognizes that Amitriptyline side effects may often be more troublesome than the actual symptoms which the medication was prescribed to treat, and that more effective ways exist to treat mental health than the use of psychiatric drugs.


Alternative to Meds Center offers comprehensive techniques of Amitriptyline side effects help that allow users to be free of side effects through discontinuing medication safely and comfortably. Proven alternatives are provided to address the symptoms that Amitriptyline was prescribed for. Do you want to see your loved one, or yourself begin to live the life you know is entirely attainable?

The two most common side effects of Amitriptyline, also known as Elavil, are dry mouth and drowsiness, but this medication can have effects on several systems within the body. These systems include cardiovascular, central nervous, hematological ( blood ), gastrointestinal, and more. Elavil side effects that are heart-related are more common among individuals 60 or older. Some side effects of this medication require immediate medical attention, for example, swelling of the throat of face, hives, and difficulty breathing. When any of these symptoms occur, emergency attention is needed. Alternative to Meds Center provides medical care, 24/7 attention, and customized tapering plans to fit the needs of each client. If side effects are bothering you or a loved one, we can safely taper you of the medication, provide an effective alternative treatment for depression, and address the underlying reasons why you started experiencing depression.

Psychological side effects of this drug that can be serious and should be reported to a medical professional include feeling impulsive, hostile, agitated, aggressive, hyperactive ( physically or mentally ), restless, more depressed, or suicidal such as thoughts of hurting yourself. These adverse Amitriptyline interactions can be serious and often need medical attention. Professional medical help should also be sought after for any of the following effects: behavior or mood changes, panic or anxiety attacks, having trouble with sleeping, slow speech or difficulty speaking, feeling faint or dizzy, and crushing chest pains. Our treatment center employs medically supervised methods of Amitriptyline side effects help, medication tapering, and alternative treatment plans to ensure safety and relief.

Other serious antidepressant side effects of Amitriptyline are a rapid, irregular, or pounding heartbeat, severe hives or skin rash, swelling of the tongue and face, yellowing of the eyes or skin, spasms of the back, jaw, and/or neck muscles, one body part or more uncontrollably shaking, experiencing numbness or weakness down a leg or an arm, fainting, seizures, unusual bruising or bleeding, hallucinations ( hearing voices or seeing things that don’t exist ), less frequent or no urination at all, extreme thirst, overdose, and a general feeling of illness. Antidepressant side effects can be extremely invasive, even painful, or threatening to one’s health, and are common reasons for discontinuing antidepressant drugs. Our techniques of Amitriptyline side effects treatment are able to make discontinuation of this medication and its side effects as comfortable as possible.

Along with serious possible side effects, there are a number of other effects that are less serious, but still need to be reported to a medical professional if experienced. They include dry mouth, drowsiness, vomiting, nausea, tiredness, weakness, nightmares, constipation, headaches, having difficulty urinating, burning, tingling or pain in the feet or hands, blurred vision, excessive sweating, changes in sex ability or drive, confusion, appetite changes, and Amitriptyline weight gain. Individuals are usually given antidepressants before any investigative efforts are put into why the person is feeling depressed. Most people are prescribed this drug during an event that is traumatic, and years afterward they are still on it and suffer with Amitriptyline withdrawal side effects if they attempt to stop taking it.

At Alternative to Meds Center drug rehab, our first goal is to discover the possible medical reasons of why a person might be depression, unable to sleep, manic, anxious, or experiencing other symptoms. Our program additionally provides accurate Amitriptyline information and education, the use of lab testing, natural substances which stabilize the person’s neurochemistry, medication withdrawal techniques, methods of cleansing to eliminate environmentally accumulated neurotoxins which may have led to the symptoms which resulted in being medicated with antidepressants to begin with, IV amino therapy, custom targeted nutritional therapy, massage therapy, peer support, personal exercise training, yoga, and other modalities of Amitriptyline adverse effects treatment to combat side effects and depression.
