My neurologist has wanted to cut me down on the amitriptyline for a while I have been on 100mg for about 4 years now. I cut down to 75 mg on Sunday night. I was wondering if anyone has had a ravenous appetite due to decreasing amitriptyline? It isnt huge and granted I am getting over my 3rd intestinal surgery since February which could be contributing as well. I noticed the increase in appetite a couple of days ago. I am also on fentanyl pain patch and deceasing the dose on those after 3 months so getting to sleep is tough so he gave me ambien to aid in that I have only had to use it 2 times this week this is my first week on it.
I also have noticed that if I dont eat when I get these hunger cravings I will get a headache. Any suggestions?
