I took the amitriptylene at 10pm last night, and set my alarm for 8:15 (didn't go to bed until after midnight). The first couple of times my alarm went off, I felt like I was moving through cotton to get out of bed and hit snooze. It took 25 minutes or so (it's a cell phone alarm that goes off every five minutes), but I finally stopped feeling like that after the third or fourth iteration. I even managed to get up in time to take a shower and such before leaving for class.
And also my mouth felt disgusting. Needed water, I guess.
I have to be at a physical therapy appointment at 8:15am tomorrow. This is going to be interesting.
On the bright side, I feel much less pain than I did half a week ago.
