Schutz, I have been on and off of amitriptyline since my 20s for anxiety and have been on 100 mg for 10 or 11 yrs now, I've lost track. I've also been on xanax for 10 or 11 yrs. Have they attributed to memory loss, I don't know but I wouldn't say my memory or fog is any worse than anyone else with fibro.
Grailhunter, you have to weigh the benefits against the side affects and for me the benefits win. I would love to go in right now and flush every med I'm on but I would be in bad shape if I did. I found out in the spring how cutting down on the amitriptyline just a little did to the fibro and I don't care to go through that again.
luv and hugs
