Hi Jim, I think I have said this before, but I will never take amitriplyne again ever. This left me in such a fog, I didnt know what was real and what was not. I notice more people have bad side effects then not having a problem with the side effects.
For several years, I was given scrips for them, after the first, I never filled another. If you wonder why I took the scrips at all, its because they insisted I take this antidepressent, again blackmail, if you dont get this, your not going to get your pain meds. So month after month I was given a prescription for it. As soon as I left the dr office they were ripped up and thrown away, and month after month I was asked how they worked, I said fine. I had run gambit of antidepressents, not one worked. So it was just easier to let them think they were doing just great. They just didnt listen, and I needed the pain meds for my pain so.
Of course the good thing is the doctor I have now, he did listen. He is great and I hope to be with him well a very long time.
Take care, good luck with the cymbalta.
