I understand your fear. I want to congratulate you for your sobriety. It's tough to break an addiction or a habit. I know, I am still a smoker (just a few a day but still smoking) in spite of the fact that I quit for seven years. I found myself buying a pack a few years ago during a very low point in my life. Now I face the agony of the quitting process all over again. You are not alone.
I don't know why you stopped taking the phycotrophic medication. I hope that was under the advice of your physician. If you quit without the advice of your physician please return to him/her and discuss options. The lack of this in your system may be increasing your fears.
Amitriptyline should not be taken on and off. In order to be effective it should be taken routinely as prescribed. In my opinion you should discuss this with your physician also. Part of your fears can be due to the erratic way you take this medication coupled with the fact that you are now sober and the discontinuation of the phycotrophic medication.
Please see you physician. Tell him about your fears and concerns. And please let us know how you are doing. We are here to support you.
I ditto Tuck's remarks completely. Taking any medications that way - but especially psychotropic meds - can cause havoc. And - squash that normal fear - by shining light on the subject! You'll have support here. Better to know the truth of what's going on than to fear the worst.
