Re: Amitriptyline effects with LBDâ¦short and long
I can tell you that several people in the local support group use Elavil (amitriptyline) with no problem. There's absolutely no way to know if they have DLB or PDD while they are still alive. But, if you think it caused you irreversible side effects, then move on to something else. There are lots of antidepressants and sedating meds out there for you and your MD to consider.
something just hit meâ¦like a ton of bricksâ¦.and big light!
these people that are on Elavilâ¦.are they cognitively functional? What stage are they? Can they do math? Can they solve word problems? Do any of them still work in a job where executive functioning is required?
or? are these people of Elavil at an advanced stage and have these cognitive issues at an advanced stage?
Am I making any sense here?
if Tonya and Craig are early onset and tri-cyclics cause a rapid decline in cognitionâ¦.that raises questionsâ¦.especially if tri-cyclics are on fringe lists and not on the BIGGEE listsâ¦.the cognitive decline might overshadow any other benefits of taking the drugâ¦.they might push us off the cliffâ¦.
Other people that are on tri-cyclics that already have advance to where cognitive issues are already extremeâ¦..might not perceive any problem by adding a tri-cyclicâ¦.they might benefit from other features of the drugâ¦and whether the drug is causing any further cognitive declineâ¦.might be impossible to see...
