Hi All. Well, following all your kind advice, I went and picked my amitryptiline script up yesterday like a good girl. The rheumy assured me it was too low a dose to make me drowsy the next day but was high enough to help me get a good night sleep and help with the pain. Result? - no improvement in sleep, pain levels the same as ever but I have been wandering round like a zombie all day! Luckily I work in a GP surgery so they understood why. Been assured by GP friend that I should get improvement with side effects and positive benefits in time so watch this space ..........
