Amitriptyline hydrochloride (sold as Elavil®, Tryptanol®, Endep®, Elatrol®, Tryptizol®, Trepiline®) is a tricyclic antidepressant drug. Valium - base durg Diazepam , marketed under brand names Valium, Stesolid, Diazemuls, Seduxen, Bosaurin, Diapam, Antenex and Apozepam) is a drug which is a benzodiazepine derivative. It possesses anxiolytic, anticonvulsant, sedative, skeletal muscle relaxant and amnestic properties. Both Amitriptyline and Valium does not contain Nitroglycerin, and they are prescribed for sleeping. It is bad if taken frequently or regularly and the patient will get addicted in course of time. Nitroglycerin is used medically as a vasodilator to treat heart conditions-.

My Doctor has recently put me on Amitriptyline 50 mg for sleep, I also take .5 mg of valium 3 times a day. Other medications are 20 mg of crestor and 50 mgs of Atenolol once a day. 1 week approx. after starting the Amitriptyline I woke up one morning, yesterday, as I was walking towards the bathroom I started getting dizzy to the point I couldnt keep walking and had to sit. During the day I had about 5 more episodes. Today it happened again while I was driving and almost got into an accident. The only other thing is I have horrible eating habits where I go sometimes 3-4 days without eating as I am on a fixed income. During the night my sleep is not disturbed.
