It is really hard to say, as I am on a low dose (50 mg). I also take lexapro (for depression) and I have been on it for a long time. I have been feeling very emotionally healthy, but I haven't noticed a difference in the before and after of taking the amitriptyline. I do know though, that good sleep helps your body in lots of good ways.
Keep us posted on how it works for you!!
