amitriptyline and alcohol
Hi
My rheumatologist has prescribed me 10-20mg a day of Amitriptyline to help with chronic nerve pain that i have in my neck and back. The pack states that i should avoid alcohol but as i am on such a low dose will i still get bad effects from drinking as i would if i was taking it for depression and on the maximum dose? I have a birthday coming up and am likely to be wanting to celebrate with a few drinks! Also - if i stop taking the pills for a few days will i still feel the effects of coming off them for a bit as i would if i was on a higher dose?
I have only been taking 10mg a day so far for the last week or so and have not felt any side effects but neither have i yet felt any benefit! How long should it take for them to work?
Thanks
