  • Side effects associated with anticholinergics include blurred vision, dry mouth, urinary retention, rapid heartbeat, acute angle glaucoma, confusion, and delirium. These adverse reactions can be serious, so it is important to discuss any concerns with a healthcare provider.

Avoid alcoholic beverages while taking amitriptyline and talk to your doctor if you are using marijuana (cannabis).
