I;m on Sulfa, hydroxy & MTX but I also have to take cocodamal 3-4 times a day. I was also on 50 mgs of Amytriptilline which I didn't feel was helping so decided to stop it.
As I was still in pain I was given Bustran patches - well a week of them made me feel really ill - note to self - don't think morphine is a good drug for me!
Rheumy suggested trying Pregablin, - tried it for a month & felt terrible from the side effects - queasy, fuzzy headed, sore & feeling unwell all the time.
So decided with GP to stop that!
After a few days of feeling rough & sore I wondered if Amytriptilline had actually worked! So I decided to try it again, starting off on 20mgs & gradually increasing it. Well after 3 days I feel so much better, still sore but not as much, have more energy & back to how I felt a couple of months a go!!!!
So I'm going to keep on it & see what happens!
It's so hard to know what helps & what hinders isn't it?!
