    Forgetful on amytriptyline

    Hi, I've been on amytriptyline for about 6 months now and I've increased from 25mg to 50mg for over two months. I am finding it hard to concentrate at work and I'm very forgetful which is not like me. I'm finding this is having an effect on my confidence as I feel like a liability. I have tried other antidepressants over the years but they only seem to work for about a year and then I'm struggling again. Does anyone have the same problem?

    I'm terrible with antidepressants, I'm on my 9th different one, have taken them at various doses and combinations and am classed as being treatment-resistant. For some people, it takes a few tries to find one that helps. Not surprising when there are more than 20 available.

    Have you spoken to your doctor about how you're feeling? Counselling may help too.

    Hi and welcome. Im forgetful but, as Im on multiple meds as well as Ami, its hard to know which is responsible. But Id much rather be forgetful than be depressed - after all, I can always write things down
    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    Me too But I also take a cocktail of medication and have a complex list of physical medical issues so mine is caused by that... If you eat in the morning it seems to help and make sure you are hydrating enough. (I take 75mg)
