Mobility issues have plagued me for some time due to excessive pain. I found mainstream painkillers useless. My GP now confirms that my pain is ‘neuropathic’ in origin and has prescribed Amitriptyline (10mg per day).
I am feeling optimistic and hope that this may turn things around for me.
Can anyone can tell me from first-hand experience if this drug is effective in dealing with neuropathic pain? Is my optimism justified?
Silly question also (sorry) – I assume this drug is to be taken every day regardless of my level of pain (packet says ‘take one at night’), and not just when pain dictates, as per Codeine or Ibuprofen for instance?
