Will it be safe for me to quit antidepressant amitriptyline cold turkey after 2 weeks on it?

I been taking 10 mg dose of antidepressant amitriptyline at bedtime for 1 week then been taking 25 mg dose of antidepressant amitriptyline at bedtime the next week after but I didn't find it really helpful for my pain so I have decided I want to quit taking it. Should it be safe for me to just stop taking it?

    I'm no expert, but I wouldn't think there would be a problem with that. But if you want to play it safe, just go back to 10 mg for a few days first.
