I have been offered this drug on a low dosage for acute back pain. I have a damaged lumbar facet joint trapping my sciatic nerve in my left leg. To my horror a physiotherapist and a GP have suggested I might try this drug for pain relief as the physio and painkillers are not working. I just can't sit down because of the nerve pain in my leg and I have to travel 215 miles in a week's time for a serious family health commitment.
I use the word "horror" as it has taken me 10 months to be totally free from mirtazapine withdrawal side effects. And as most AD users will know, there is no support for any patient when trying to stop taking these drugs. You are out there, alone.
Now that I feel free at last from the insidious side effects of mirtazapine, I'm offered amitriptyline. ??
Is anyone taking this drug for back pain and does it work?
