Amitriptyline, also known as Elavil, is the most commonly prescribed of the Tricyclic class of antidepressants and is dispensed for anxiety, depression, ADHD ( attention deficit hyperactivity disorder ), eating disorders, migraines, insomnia, neuralgia, and bipolar disorder. When stopping Amitriptyline abruptly without professional help; dizziness, restlessness, headaches, and nausea may occur along with other Amitriptyline withdrawal side effects. Symptoms can emerge from quitting Amitriptyline even when only one or two doses have been missed.

How can Amitriptyline withdrawal be minimized?

Our Amitriptyline antidepressant withdrawal treatment program guides a person through every step of getting off Amitriptyline. We use natural substances and nutrients to minimize symptoms and stabilize the neurochemistry. We provide biochemical corrections to people with altered brain chemistries that are creating depressive-like symptoms. When administered correctly, nutrients and natural substances can completely restore a system that is depleted from using antidepressants and exposure to other chemicals and toxins. We aim to minimize withdrawal from Amitriptyline and provide recommendations for dietary needs and items that should be eliminated to make withdrawal more comfortable. Rather than adding other unnecessary medications as an attempt to decrease withdrawal, we use an approach that is natural and non-drugging. With combined medical and natural approaches, you can be Amitriptyline-free and mentally healthy.

How can a person overcome depression?

The Alternative to Meds Center program focuses on discovering the root reasons which may have caused an individual to feel depressed and use antidepressant drugs to begin with. We use cognitive behavioral therapy, which lets individuals comfortably dissect and look at how it is possible for people to be out of alignment with their true desire or life’s purpose, something that often adds to depression for some people. People are usually put on antidepressants before there’s been any adequate amount of investigation as to why they have become depressed. Our program uses lab testing to find medical reasons for depression, stabilization of neurochemistry with nutrients, IV amino acid therapies, targeted nutritional therapies, cleansing of accumulated environmental neurotoxins, and support from peers, massage, yoga, personal training, exercise, and other therapies to combat Amitriptyline withdrawal.
