So this afternoon was horrendous, I couldn't walk properly, felt and looked like if taken a massive overdose! My toddler ran out onto the road and went right across and I couldn't catch her. Thank god there was no cars as it's a blind corner.
I had to call the Dr as I couldn't take the side effects anymore. I can't function as a mother let alone a person. The duty doc called me back and has advised me not to stick it out as obviously the side effects are outweighing the benefits and my quality of life.
I have an appointment with my GP at 10am tomorrow. Because of my low seizure threshold it was either going to be gabapentin or lyrica :-( so now it looks like it'll be lyrica. I really wish I could have stayed on the tramadol and amitryptiline I'm terrified of the weight gain from lyrica and anymore side effects. Will have to see how it goes.
Oh how I wish I could go back to just taking some co-codamol!

Sorry just a random update

Pinky there is a sister~med to Amitriptyline called Nortriptyline. It works in the same ways on the same problems, but is said to be better tolerated and have fewer side effects. If you find things are going in a similar way with the seizures, thresholds etc, it might be worth asking your GP if these things have a lower incidence of happening with Nortriptyline.
