    Poster 1718 Effect of Antidepressants on Sleep in Functional Dyspepsia

    Author Insight from Yuri A. Saito-Loftus, MD, Mayo Clinic Rochester

    What’s new here and important for clinicians? 

    Patients with functional dyspepsia (FD) frequently report fatigue. This study shows that FD patients frequently have poor sleep quality. This study suggests that a known side effect of amitriptyline—sleepiness— has resulted in longer sleep duration, but not necessarily improvement in global sleep quality. For FD patients reporting poor sleep, a potential added benefit of amitriptyline is longer nighttime sleep.

    What do patients need to know?

    Poor sleep quality is common in individuals with FD.
