what are your experiences with amitriptyline? I started to taking 10mg, 3 days ago, to help with the chronic pain that is affecting my sleep as I've only been getting about 4 hours a night. I've heard quite a few people day that even though pain reduction doesn't start for a couple of weeks they've felt the sleep benefits straight away, but I've had nothing. my pain is still keeping me up and I don't feel drowsy at all.

      I use it and it helps me a lot with sleeping and it worked for me fairly quickly

      I take the same amount as you, and it doesn't help with my sleep at all but definitely helps with my pain! I was hoping for both, but that's just not how it has reacted with my body unfortunately. I would wait until it starts to help with the pain, and if you still aren't sleeping go back to your doctor because you might need something else

      I take 3 10 mg every day at 6:00 pm - heard it’s effectiveness is about 12 hours . Has helped me sleep but I did end up taking medical marijuana as well

Based on the experiences shared, some people have found that Amitriptyline helped them sleep better almost immediately, while others reported feeling drowsy during the day after starting the medication. One person mentioned that they started to feel pain relief about a week or two after starting the medication. However, there were also individuals who did not experience any immediate benefits in terms of sleep or pain relief. It's important to note that everyone's reaction to medication can be different and it may take time for the full effects to be felt.
