I was just wondering if anyone had been prescribed Amitriptyline for their fibromyalgia? I had to go to the doctors today as my pain has been really bad and I have been coping with just painkillers. The doctor suggested Amitriptyline but said the side affects can be worse than the illness which at the least was a little disconcerting. So now I am in 2 minds whether or not to take them. I am allergic to a lot of medications so always apprehensive about trying new ones. I must admit it is getting me down not sleeping well having to work and then there's Christmas and to be honest my husband hasn't a clue bless him so its left to me if it was left to him God only knows what people would get..lol Any input from anyone would be great.
Thank you x
