is it my turn now??

Posted by rod on June 15, 2001, at 10:18:14

i feel like my med is not working on the current dose anymore. My doctor says that the medication alone cant do the whole and I have to contribute a part by myself to it. thing I take 150mg of Amitriptyline (4 weeks at this dose) and Zyprexa 2,5mg at bedtime for 2 days now (which I do not consider to take anymore, because it has no effect besides making me sleepy and _very_ dizzy). (in the past i also took prozac, calexa, edronax (reboxetin))Is it normal that meds wok very fine at the beginning and then wear off? After a few weeks on Amitriptyline I felt so good, free and real, beeing happy to be alive. I was so satisfied with the things I have in life. I even saw thing more clear and sharper with my eyes. Have never felt like this since I was a child ( am now 22).
Now it doesnt do what it did before. I dont feel very unhappy now, but have again difficulties to concentrate and the joy of live has gone, and so on. Is this normal?? schouldn't it work day by day as it did?? I know it is difficult to say and maybe to realize by hisself what is "normal" and what isnt, or when the goal is reached. I dont know if an increas in dosage would help, becasue I feel like Amitriptyline lost its psychotropic action. It still sedates me, but thats not the whole thing I want.
So the question is: what if the med wears off, doesnt do the thing it did - increas dosage? -switch? -combine? -anyone expirienced similar things with Amitriptyline or general?

ps: excuse my english (not my mothertounge)
