  • From this study (9 months ago):

  • WalleyWalrus on Dec, 29, 2013:

    52 year old, white, female, recently diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis (painful bladder syndrome). Also had recent surgery for mucocele on my appendix. Type II diabetes and gastrophoresis. Been taking amitriptyline for severe bladder pain for approx. 6 months. Began at 10mg increased to 25mg. Can't sleep at night, sleepy throughout the day, zero appetite, nothing tastes right even water, eat a few bites and can't swallow any more, lost 30 in 6 weeks, extremely weak muscles, balance issues, blood sugars high dispite lack of food, extreme constipation, depressed (no interest in anything) where I wasn't depressed before. I thought I was having a long recovery from my surgery. I keep feeling more sick and weak and don't want to eat. I have almost fallen several times because my legs start to give out from underneath me. I have worked full time for 30 years. I kept wondering what was wrong with me. I am having to steady myself with a cane and I don't have the strength to step onto a curb. I did some research and found that someone with gastrophoresis should not take amilyltriptoline! I also have type II diabetes and I take Ritalin for a sleep disorder and these are two other reasons why I should not take amilyltriptoline. I stopped it last night and will call my doctor tomorrow. I hope my bladder pain doesn't flare up, but I have to get off this medicine!
