Does Amitriptyline work for your fibromyalgia pain? What other medications have you tried? I’m looking for a better way to handle the chronic pain.

      I received the best help once my PCP referred me to a pain specialist. Good luck!

      When I took it I slept better and when I slept better I felt better overall.

      QuestionQueen I take mine at night and it really helps me sleep. I am, however, in a higher dose.

      Thanks! I think I may try mine at night as some of you suggested.

      I have been on it for about 4 years and I find that I have more days out of bed than in bed. Unlike before when I couldn’t get myself out of bed to even go to work. It’s not a cure all but it definitely helps make my pain more manageable. I do have it paired with Buspirone which is an anti-anxiety med but also is used to chronic pain.

      I take it for nerve pain, it helps a lot. Without it I can barely sleep

      It really helps my FM and IBS symptoms. I still have pain but it has greatly reduced it. The one downside is that it gives me acid reflux.

      I take it before bedtime. It helps me fall asleep but doesn’t really help me stay asleep.

      It really helps me with my idiopathic nerve pain all over my body and ibs pain as well. The key is to find the correct dosage, at least that was what I found in my case.

      I only use it to control my IBS symptoms. It works for it maybe 70%. I take a very low dose of 20mg. Maybe higher doses work for other things.
