Sorry to bother everyone again, but new doctor and new courses of action and not sure what to expect. Was discussing symptoms with my doc the other day and some of the things I have tried that have not worked. He called me in a prescript
ion for Amitriptyline. I was wondering if anyone has tried this or something similiar to this and if it works. It is a antidepressant med primarily but he is confidant that it will help sooth the nerves in my gut to help things. Did some reading and it the theory seems sound and it looks like some people have had sucess with this, but I trust the opinion of you guys on here and need feedback. I have not tried it yet because waiting for the weekend just in case I have a bad reaction to it I dont miss any work.
I have tried other antidpressant and anxiety meds in the past but they just made me feel disconnected and in some cases it made things worse so I am a little timid about trying this. I am trying to not Google doctor it to much so I dont have my panic button pushed, but I am sure at some point before I take the first pill I will do that and end up not trying something that could possibly work.
