Hi Mouse7R:When i was first diagnosed in 1994, the only treatment being offered was Amyltriptilene, at bedtime. It will certainly get you sleeping and helps with the pain also. Some people give up on it fairly quickly, because it causes dry mouth, a kind of hang-over feeling in the morning, and sometimes you feel like you're in a daze for most of the morning. However, if they start you on a very low dose, and slowly titrate up, as well: you should take it at least two hours before bedtime, it might help. I managed with that and OTC tylenol 1, for eight years.best of luck, to you.
