I went to my GP for the first time last week,and told her about the sleep paralysis, hallucinations, heightened sensitivity to sound, irritability, etc.(or tried anyway!) & she prescribed Amitriptyline, as she thinks I have depression, probably because I became a bit emotional. It wasn\'t a great consultation - she seemed irritable & offered the med, then withdrew it when I told her there was a history of heart disease in my family, but then I asked her to prescribe it, because I thought she might be right & wasn\'t very together really. I asked her to refer me to a sleep clinic, which I think she has done, but I don\'t know whether to take the amitriptyline or not. If I do, will it affect any sleep study? I told a friend about it,& she thinks I should take it, but I can tell she thinks I have depression rather than a sleep disorder. I know you can\'t tell me whether take it or not, but I just feel I have been prescribed it for the wrong reasons.
