Please explain to me how taking amiltriptyline at night to combat pain in the day is possible? I am finding it so hard to trust this. My pain is at an 8, an 8 is how I start each day. I am not what you would call a "complainer", I am just letting you know how bad its gotten over the past 12 months. So I am putting all my hopes on this new med, almost like a hail mary pass
I feel like a teenager in rebellion of this health challenge. At first I tried taking 10mg in the day, but for the past week I have been trying to do it right, taking 30mg at night. The good news I don't need trazadone for sleep [has anyone been on trazadone? I need more personal info on this med.] My pain has gotten so bad that is affecting my attitude and my faith. What can I reasonably expect from this med? I didn't realize how bad I was doing, physically and emotionally, until the doc offered this. I hope this makes sense. Any thoughts and personal experiences on how this med helps with pain will be most appreciated.
