Hi Rache, I've been on 100 mg of elevil/amitriptyline for 11 yrs. I take it and 1 1/2 mg of xanax at bedtime. I don't know how well it works for sleeping since I have been on it for so long but I do believe it helps the pain. I tried cutting back on it last spring and went into a flare from hades for two weeks. I think that was the first part of June so we shall see what happens to my body as the weather gets warmer. I know I had never had a flare like that before and haven't had one since.
It does make me crave sweets and carbs but I have been lucky in not gaining a lot of weight on it.
luv and hugs
