Hi All, Saw my MS nurse today and she mentioned maybe giving me ‘Amitripyline’ for pain symptoms im having. While I was there she did mention to me the drowsiness side effects of this drug. However, she did explain to me that this is why ppl are advised to take this at nite to avoid problems in the daytime. think i got this right???Anyway, my question is simply, does anyone use this as pain med and how do you deal with the ‘drowsiness issue’ that is for those of you that this happens too. Although from what she said it seemed like a ‘given’ that it has a sedation like effect from what I understood.
Also wonderng how many ppl here use normal pain relief such as Paracetemol and Ibuprofen and have you had any issues with using this as a ‘long term solution’ to pain?
ty in advance for any replies / help
God Bless, Anna x
