My doc seems to think it's going to make a difference but I'm not so sure as it's just another anti-depressant that has a bunch of side effects. Antidepressant medications are used to treat a variety of conditions, including depression and other mental/mood disorders. Somnambulism (ie, sleepwalking) is a disorder of arousal that falls under the Parasomnias of disorders.
However, studies have shown that a small number of people (especially people younger than 25) who take antidepressants for any condition may experience worsening depression, other mental/mood symptoms, or suicidal thoughts/attempts. These medications can help prevent suicidal thoughts/attempts and provide other important benefits.
Sleepwalking — also known as somnambulism — involves getting up and walking around while in a state of sleep.
Has anyone here been prescribed Amitriptyline (AKA Trip) as medication (or a part of it) to reduce the frequency of sleepwalking episodes? If you take Amitriptyline hydrocoride and have Sleep walking, find out what symptoms you could have in 1 year or longer.
