My dr switched me from acid reducing meds to Elavil (amitriptyline) for a burning stomach lining. My stomach has healed but when I taper down the amitriptyline dose to try to get off it I get massive heartburn that forces me to ramp it back up again.
I know Elavil relaxes the lower esophagus sphincter. But does it give you powerful heartburn when you taper it down?
The other possibility is I may have massive heartburn for another reason that is revealed when I taper down the pain modulator.
Anybody have experience with this?
