My screaming nerves and almost overwhelming anxiety grew intolerable. My neuro listened and gave me a trial script for trazodone, didn't help, and the dry, cotton mouth was horrible, and then amitryptylline, which really, really seems to help. I take 10mgs at night and I am so grateful. I hated adding another med to the list, but it was becoming a big quality of life issue. My last flare was so bad, I truly said for two nights, that I couldn't, didn't, want to live like this. Please talk to your dr. soon.
ps. isn't there an old commercial that advertised "better living through chemistry"?
God knows, even if I don't....
