    Hi!

    I recently started Amitriptyline less than a month ago, but I do know quite a bit about it.

    I was put on it originally for Nerve pain and he also hoped it would help my sleep.. (I take 20mg a night currently) and if I need it increasing then it will be increased. I think it may be helping my nerve pain, but its a bit too early to tell, as for sleep.. its done nothing.

    Amitriptyline is used for a number of things... sleep, migraines, mental illness, nerve pain, rheumatoid conditions etc.

    Its used at different doses for different things...

    For pain you can take anything between 20mg and 75mg (can be higher for migraines).

    Amitriptyline is used to treat mental illness, like depression.. however you need it at a much higher dose.. I was told about 100-150mg helps depression by my consultant as he said its an option for me. 😊
