Dove, sorry I was not around when you posted about this reaction.

In 1984, I took my first dose of amytriptaline, 25 mg, and had a severe reaction that landed me in the emergency room: Concurrent super-hyped up feelings, bouncing off walls, with extreme feelings of sedation, muscle uncoordination, balance problems, slurred speech. Having these two seemingly opposite reactions concurrently freaked me out. I sometimes get a milder version of this on benadryl.
I have mild forms of this internal racing feeling. It feels awful. Yours sounds way more powerful, and intolerable. Definitely need to tell your doc you have to start slower. My doc, one of the good things about him, always starts me very very gradually on all meds. I guess he really listened back when I first went to see him, and he took my history, about my reaction to that amytriptaline.
The docs have a lot of expertise, but ablsolutely NO DIRECT KNOWLEDGE of how it feels to be in YOUR BODY. In that respect YOU ARE THE EXPERT.
