Hello, everybody,

I was on the fibromyalgia forum on this site for a while, but found out yesterday I don't have fibro, I have "unspecified chronic pain". So I stopped by this forum.

The doctor gave me amitriptyline for pain and to put me out at night. Does anybody else on here take that or something else? And does it help a lot?

Welcome to HealingWell forums.

My husband was put on amitriptyline two weeks ago for his Fibro. We don't know if it works yet it needs more time.

Hope you stay with us we all will be here to support you in all issues.

Hi Andrea.

Welcome to the CP board! We're happy to have you. What kind of pain do you suffer from? Is it throughout you body, hence the mention of fibro?

I've also been on amitriptylene, multiple times, in fact. I was on it towards the beginning of my "journey" & I've also been on it recently. I've been on both low & high doses for pain, sleep, and depression. Personally, I hated the drug. I got no benefit & horrible side effects, but don't let that discourage you. Everyone's physiology is very different (mine is very strange & unusual, apparently) & so everyone reacts to medications differently. What works for one person may not work for another. Low doses of amitriptylene are used very commonly to treat chronic pain. I wish you the best of luck & hope that it helps!
