Anyone ever been on amitriptyline? Think I may have definitely been on too high a dosage, but found the side effects to be way brutal and now scared to ever try anything again

Yes but for nonstop headaches from post concussion syndrome - it cleared my unending headaches but made me severely depressed. I was in college at the time so I kept on it though finals and then weaned off and never tried it again. My headaches did finally go away without it

Thanks for sharing and happy to hear your headaches are gone. It definitely made me feel very depressed but also the heart palpitations made me very anxious and irritable. And at night the dreams were so vivid they bordered on hallucinations which was terrifying….brutal stuff

The associate that works with me started taking it and they had a massive personality change in the first 3-4 weeks which was very unprofessional but I had to be understanding. It has leveled out a little bit but they are still way more outspoken, interrupt during calls, not reliable, etc.

Ever feel like your company or other departments do not respect the legal team or the work you do? Normally, I'm ok ignoring and getting shit on by other departments and having managers (younger than me and with less experience and terrible business sense) circumventing the department policies or harassing me to get stuff done outside our process. Lately, just feeling more "over" it and getting more and more angry. What are some of your coping strategies?

Seeing a therapist and taking some meds (Straterra-non stimulant) to try and treat my ADHD and forgetfulness. It’s been super difficult because I’ve done well in school, but I can’t seem to excel at work because I feel like I suck at meetings/ verbalizing my thoughts / understanding what was discussed / or forgetting key details. Does anybody have tips on how to handle this? I think what gets me is that this feels like a personality trait that I can’t fix, and it’s causing me to feel depressed.

I had a mental breakdown while at work yesterday, the manger on duty treated me like I was doing this on purpose. It was the worst breakdown I’ve probably ever had, it’s been so long since I’ve had one and it was so bad that I was struggling to get grounded. She did ask what I need to do and I said be left alone, which she prooceed to ignore and stay in the room with me to talk on the phone with our gm and lectured me on what would happen if I didn’t go back to work. And now I’m quitting.

I feel so stupid at work. I'm generally shy and not being able to share my thoughts adds to that feeling. Plus, I feel people see me much differently because I am not extroverted and always keep to myself. My shyness - I think stemmed from childhood traums which I was not able to ovecome.
