I think I mentioned before that Amitriptyline should only be given to healthy cats, none that have any health issues. It is normally used to help ease stress levels in cats. However, it just made Sweet Pea more aggressive. . My vet would only prescibe it if blood work was good prior to the prescription and follow up blood work at LEAST every six weeks to check liver and kidney functions. He was most concerned about liver with this med. If I were you, I would discuss with the vet to slowly discontinue the use of this med. It shouldn't be stopped cold turkey.

I like, Sugarcatmom, am wondering about your vet. . Is there another one in your area?
