Hello everyone. I have been on Amitriptyline with success for almost four months, first 25mg then 50 mg. Over the last two weeks the pain and sensations have gradually returned. I spoke to my doctor yesterday and she has moved me to 75mg, but thinks the pain is due to my cycle (I am on Cerelle though with no periods). I am not convinced and think it's my body that has become used to the drug. I have two questions. Firstly what's the highest dose anyone has been on, and secondly is there an alternative I could try? Am SO gutted and the old miserable me is coming after the 'high' of being pain free.
