i have been diagnosed osteoarthritis in my hands, fingers, thumbs, knees, elbows, shoulders and feet. I have been prescribed Codeine, Nefopam, Naproxen (which I've had to stop taking due to it giving me severe abdominal pain despite taking Omeprazole) and 20mgs of Amitriptyline on a night. I've taken the Amitriptyline for about 10 years now ever since I had severe neck pain. I'm now wondering if I would benefit from my dose of Amitriptyline being increased as I'm kept awake most nights with pain in one or more of my joints. Has anyone taken Amitriptyline for osteoarthritis and if so what dose were you prescribed? I'm seeing my GP in a few weeks time because of the increased pain.
