My GP has prescribed a small dose of Amitriptyline for my persistent lower left hand side pain. This was originally used for depression but was found to have a calming effect on the colon in some people.
I wonder if anyone has experience of using this? I'm rather worried about side effects and worsening constipation. I'm inclined to hold off and hope the LHS pain will eventually settle.
I am taking Fybogel and a probiotic fibre supplement but cannot work out why the pain level varies so much. This is not an easy disease to understand!
