Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.Amitriptyline
is a good drug for sleep disorders as well as panic attacks, although an old drug. The only problem i forsee its use in your case is your age. At 75 years amitriptyline can cause cardiac rhythm abnormalities and cardiac complications as well.
You should instead try other sleep meds like zolpidem
, eszopiclone, trazodone
, etc. Maybe you can discuss these issues with your psychiatrist
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
