I met with my doctor two weeks ago, and we decided to start weaning me off the amitriptyline, and sticking just to Geodon. According to a new study, Geodon can be effective for migraine management on its own, so we are going to test that theory. So far it has been going amazingly, in all aspects except one.
My body is very used to receiving heavy sedatives every night. Now, I’m down to 40 mg and it is difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep. But I’m not tired during the day, so it’s not terrible. I think I am slowly reverting back to how I was before medication, when I would sleep maybe six hours a night and be fine.
