What medication for nerve pain can I ... - Pelvic Pain Suppo...

10.5 mg of amitriptyline is like nothing.
Oh really should I up it for nerve pain in groin will I get worse side effects then ?
Although everyone reacts differently to medicine, I've never heard of anyone taking that low of a dose. I actually take methadone for my pelvic nerve pain and it's very effective for me and with few or no side effects. Most people are scared of the name, though, so never try it.
Yes I think I need to go back to the doctors and ask for a higher dose tonight I’ll have 2 tablets rather than 1 half and maybe doc will prescribe 25mg next week. Had a good read of that article interesting! Luckily I’ve had no constipation on the amount I’m on but perhaps if I take higher dose I’ll experience it. I am on sertriline for anxiety caused by pain I take that in the morning will have to check with doc about higher dose interaction
I take 75 mg of Desipramine each morning for nerve pain. It initially made me a little sleepy, but within a week that side effect had passed.
Is that for anxiety aswell as nerve pain?
It is a medication initially used to treat depression. However, in lower doses is used to treat nerve pain. It has less side effects than amitriptyline as far as I understand.
Another medication I've heard about that is being used successfully for nerve pain is low dose Naltrexone.
Were you advised to start on a low dose to check how you reacted to medication?
I currently take 50mg in the (amitriptyline) morning and 75mg at night.It took a few months of trying out what dosage suited my needs and interaction with other drugs, drowsiness is a common side effect. Best get advice from doc as any other medication you take will be looked at for possible adverse effects or interactions. Wish you good luck!!
I take 50mg amitryptyline which helps me - for a time I also took pregabalin which I found to be helpful too.
