Amitriptyline Coma Causes and Reviews


A Coma is a deep state of unconsciousness. An individual in a Coma is alive but unable to move or respond to his or her environment. Coma may occur as a complication of an underlying illness, or as a result of injuries, such as brain injury.

A Coma rarely lasts more than 2 to 4 weeks. The outcome for Coma depends on the cause, severity, and site of the damage. People may come out of a Coma with physical, intellectual, and psychological problems. Some people may remain in a Coma for years or even decades. For those people, the most common cause of death is infection, such as pneumonia.

Amitriptyline Coma Reviews

Fri, 09 Sep 2011

can Amitriptyline can cause thrombocytopenia ?

Wed, 16 Nov 2011

After having been on elavil for 9 years, mostly at 100mg/night, I spent the last 6 months weaning off. Shortly after stopping Amitriptyline I now have high blood pressure. Before stopping, and for years before starting, my usual pressure was 115/65, now have 150/68. Can this be a withdrawal symptom or has the drug been masking a heart problem all this time or did it cause damage that did not show up before stopping the drug?
