I was asked to post this for comments:
" I was misdiagnosed with Migraine Associated Vertigo and was put on Amitryptilene. Although it did not take care of my chronic motion sickness, it did help other neurological symptoms, and also helped with sleep. The neurologist gave it to me for headaches (even though i was not having any :) ). It is an older tricyclic antidepressant.
I want to see if Ami's helped anyone else out with neuro issues."
"How Do Serotonin Levels Become Deficient In People With Chronic Lyme?
A good portion of a person's serotonin supply is manufactured in the digestive tract while a person sleeps, and because many with chronic Lyme disease have a difficult time getting a good quality sleep, the stage for low serotonin levels is set. An interesting thought, however, is low serotonin levels could be the culprit for the poor sleep quality in the first place. So the cycle could start with the high stress of dealing with chronic Lyme disease reducing serotonin levels. This initial reduction in serotonin leads to insomnia or just plain poor sleep quality. Since the body manufactures a good portion of its serotonin supply in the digestive tract while it sleeps, a person with insomnia will not only have low serotonin levels, but it will be difficult for the body to replenish its serotonin supply because of the insomnia."www.tiredoflyme.com/low-serotonin-levels-in-people-with-chronic-lyme-disease.html
From Trav: In looking at the link that was provided, I'm not really sure what the questions have to do with the article linked. This is a Facebook post that I was asked to post here, but it's from a closed group, so I can't link to the original post as it won't "go through" because you have to be a member of the group to see and post there.
The question from the poster though, about
amitriptyline helping Neuro issues is what they wished to know.
