I am on 200 mg of amitriptyline per day as treatment for depression. Prior to taking this I had been struggling with face pains and was diagnosed with nerve damage. So a happy plus side with this medication is that the face pains have essentially stopped.
Recently I have been suffering with intense pains from my left hip and all the way down my leg. The doctor has diagnosed it an problem with my sciatic nerve.
Should amitriptyline work on this type of pain? If so is it potentially cover up what may be a bigger problem than it seems?
