There is a way we patients can report problems with our medicine to the FDA. It seems more and more of us see problems with what we take, or what our children take. If you are like me you have told the doctor and felt like the doctor really didn't treat it very seriously. I knwo when I was on Effexor the doctor acted like she had never heard of the problems I was having and she seemed truly STUNNED when I spoke of withdrawal from it. Other docs reacted similarly when I reported problems with celexa and many other similar medications. So here is a link to report problems to teh FDA. The more we consumers let the FDA know what we are experiencing, the more warnings, and appropriate measures to treat side effects and withdrawal, will be created. http://www.fda.gov/medWatch/report/consumer/consumer.htm It isn't just up to the docs to report anymore. now WE have a way to report also! While Jessie's reaction to elavil (amitryptyline) is certainly very rare, it is wellworth reporting. Even though this medication has been around a LONG time I am still reporting it. Because who knows if this has been happening in kids and no one knew?
