I was recently put on the antidepressant amitriptyline, generic elavil. I have been taking it for 10 days. I know these meds aren't miracle drugs but are they supposed to make me feel worse? I feel more depressed, more anxious, and more nervous. I was put on it mainly bc of the panic attacks I've been having while driving. And now it seems I'm even more uncomfortable driving. Even with someone with me, which never bothered me before. I have absolutely no interest in things I enjoyed before. I'm worried this isn't right. I told my doctor and he said to take 2 pills instead of one 25mg. I haven't yet bc I'm scared I will feel twice as bad as I am now. Can someone please tell me if this is normal and I should give the medicine more time, should I listen to the doctor and take two, or is this just not the medicine for me?Answer Question
