    Hello!
    I have been using amitriptyline for about 3 weeks and not only did it help my tremors, but it helped me sleep. Now all of a sudden when I take it I start shaking worse. I have the same problem with azilect. What in the world is going on with me? I'm so confused; my neurologist doesn't know either. I took amitriptyline years ago for tension headaches. Could it have caused Parkinson's? Thanks for any help.

    First ask your doctor if that can be the case.

    Second call your Pharmacist and ask if that is one of the side effects.
