Like Joy I was prescribed amytriptalene for insomnia as I kept waking about 3 in the morning with the pain of arthur in my spine. Unfortunately it seriously affected my abitlity to function the next day and left me feeling heavy, spaced out, gave me short term memory problems ( couldn't recall what i'd been talking about two seconds before, not good for a teacher) and slurred speech with a thick feeling tongue. Didn't improve my sleeping pattern either. So I stopped taking it, Doc offererd to put me on a lower dose of 10 mg instead of 25 mg, but I declined his offer.
