I of course am no doctor, but cymbalta, and neurontin are not even used for the same reasons, but of course I am sure that like most meds, I am sure as with alot of meds, they are used for many issues. Amitripiline I was given in the very first years of my decline into total disability. It was given to me for depression. I hated it, it made me feel more than just woosy, it was foggy, woosy, and had a hangover effect. I certainly hope you have a better reaction than I did.
Over the years, in the beginning I was given prescriptions for it time and time again. After the first time, I never filled another one. Finally I told my pcp that he was wasting his paper and pen. I was not going to fill it or take it. Once was enough. Hopefully once you give that a try, they will give you what you already know works.
Really makes you wonder, doesnt it. Is anybody listening?
Take care and good luck to you, hope it works for you and hope you are feeling well today.
