Does amitriptyline affect fertility, pregnancy or breastfeeding?
Amitriptyline has no effect on fertility for men or women.
Studies of this drug used at higher doses to treat depression haven't shown any particular problems in relation to pregnancy, so its use at low dose during pregnancy is unlikely to be a problem.
Speak to your doctor if you become pregnant, or want to try for a baby, while on amitriptyline. Don't stop taking it suddenly or without speaking to your doctor first.
Very little of the drug has been found in the breast milk of mothers taking high doses of amitriptyline, so breastfeeding while you're on amitriptyline is unlikely to be harmful. Discuss this with your doctor if you do wish to breastfeed.
