I have nerve damage from an operation on my Ulna bone. At the time I was put on the above medication to stop some of the pain and help me to sleep at night. They then took me of it and said I shouldn't really have it as I'm on Citalipram for depression. My point i's that the amitryptaline worked really well on me and would love to go back on it. I know it helps with depression too, so has anyone else had a similar thing happen and would. You advise against the amitryptaline long term?
