Just wondering if anyone has taken Dosulepin capsules (25mg) for pain relief and if so if it has worked? I was taking amitriptyline (10mg x 1 on a night) but these did nothing for pain through the day even when I doubled the dose. They also made getting up on a morning difficult (not helpful with a 4 year old child!). So I saw gp today and explained this and he has now prescribed me Dosulepin to take 1 on a night before bed. He says these should be less drowsy.
I am just very doubtful of the pain relief side to it as nothing has worked prior to this (naproxen and diclofenac). So thought I would see if anyone has had an success with these? I know we are all different and what works for one does not always work for the other. I have not yet had a diagnosis. Just had blood tests repeated again and some new ones on friday, should get results in 6-8 weeks. So at the moment gps are just trying to find something to work on the pain. Thanks in advance for any replies xxx
