Swollowing Amitriptyline

Does anyone have the same problem as myself in swollowing Amitriptyline? I take two in the evening but find them so difficult to get down. They sometimes stick in the back of my throat causing severe burning pain (as well as gpn throat burning!). do you have any ideas to make it easier to take them?

Hi Mary,

Crushing with bit of juice maybe? The do taste awful don't them :)

Have you tried taking them with milk

Hi Mary,

That is strange I have never had any difficulty swallowing them. Are they the brand ones or generic. I take the 10 mg and they are light blue and smooth and do not break or crumble when wet ie swallowed

Thanks for these ideas. Chips987 yes they are branded. You wouldn't think such small tablets would cause so much trouble!
