the amitriptyline is to help me sleep, not so much for the pain because it does nothing in that department. I was on cymbalta and it worked ok for the pain but didn't do anything for energy. The old dr told me to up it and that was a nightmare! I hope I'll be ok with lyrica, we'll see. I've seen some people swear by it and then others have horrible side effects.
I've been on the amitriptyline for about a year now. I was on the higher dose, I just don't like the thought of taking something to sleep but I need to get over it.
