David had his second visit from the CPN today. A very nice chappy who clearly has a good knowledge of chronic pain.
On his first visit he spoke at length wih david about his depression and pain. This bout of depression has lasted almost a year this time and nothing can get him morivated.
Anyway. CPN spoke with his boss an rather than put D on yet another drug, suggested increasing the Amitriptyline from 75 at night to 150. CPN wanted to speak with me as to how I felt.
Funny really as I wrote about D reducing the drug a couple of weeks ago and how he gets nughtmres when reduced.
Nw here is the CPN doubling the dose.
D still drives and whilst he takes Amitriptyline at ight - will it affect him during the followinf day? The lower dose he was on was for muscle relaxant but now this higher dose would be for its correct use.
Any thoughts please?
