How Is Amitriptyline Used?
It is very important to follow the advice of your physician when using Amitriptyline.

If anything is unclear to you, such as the side effects or contraindications, it is best to consult your physician or trusted pharmacist.
Amitriptyline is taken orally, as directed by a physician, typically from one up to four times a day. If your doctor prescribed that you should take Amitriptyline once a day, you should take it in the evening before going to sleep to avoid daytime drowsiness. The right dosage is based on the patient's medical condition as well as the response of the user to the medication.
To reduce the likelihood of the drug's side effects like dry mouth, drowsiness, and dizziness, your doctor will recommend that you start with a low dose of Amitriptyline then increase the dose gradually.
Patients will benefit most from Amitriptyline by taking it daily. It is best if the doses are taken at the same time every day.
Never increase the Amitriptyline dose or use the drug for an extended period without informing your doctor.

Instead, the likelihood of developing side effects increases which can worsen your condition.
Do not stop taking Amitriptyline even after your symptoms get better. You mustn't cease taking the medication until you have consulted with your doctor. Suddenly stopping the intake of Amitriptyline can worsen some conditions and symptoms such as a feeling of tiredness, sleep disturbances, mood swings, and headaches. Your doctor will gradually reduce the dose of Amitriptyline to prevent symptoms from worsening or returning. When you recognize any new, worsening, or returning symptoms.
Take not the Amitriptyline may not immediately show results, but the benefits can be seen within a week. On average, it may take up to four weeks to realize the full benefits of Amitriptyline.
You must inform your doctor if your symptoms persist or your condition worsens – especially if feelings of sadness become uncontrollable or you are harboring suicidal thoughts.
How Do I Know The Right Amitriptyline Dosage?
The usual Amitriptyline dose for depression in adults and children are as follows:
Adults 18 to 64 years old may be given a starting dose of 75mg per day, given in equally divided doses. The dose may be increased by your doctor as deemed necessary, but the maximum dose should not exceed 150 mg in a span of 24 hours.
Your doctor may recommend an alternative Amitriptyline dosage schedule such as taking 50mg up to 100mg at night before going to bed, and increase by 25mg as needed, but not exceeding 150mg daily.
Amitriptyline is not proven safe or effective for treating children 0 to 17 years of age. For seniors, Amitriptyline may not be safe enough to be prescribed to them. Because the kidneys of seniors may not function as well as they did before, Amitriptyline may be processed more slowly, resulting in increased chances of side effects. If necessary, the doctor may start older adults with a lower dose or recommend an alternative dosage regimen to prevent Amitriptyline from building up in the system.
