Customer Question
My general Dr. prescribed...

My general Dr. prescribed me amitriptyline for headaches and anxiety I was having. I've been having entire body jerking right before I fall asleep. I also will wake up at around 5 am in a panic with fast heart rate.

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

It has been daily on both temple areas of my head. No nausea

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I'm aware of
