Doc has given me a prescription for my 'polymyalgia' (what shes calling it until we rule out stuff) she's prescribed low dose Endep for it. Has anyone taken this? What was your experience?(sorry I don't know what else it's called)
Hi FP ⚘⚘⚘ Its good for nerve pain... alas it never agreed with me! 🐪Take it early evenning cos otherwise 🐪u will never get up for work/play the next morning 😉... spesh when first going on it! Let ur body adjust to taking it...🐴 it may wipe u out at first! My 😉hubby takes it🤔 for nerve pain...😊 but is also an anti-psychotic medication ... so helps with mood 🐴as a bonus! 🤗
Fancy, yes, it is Amitriptyline(also known as Elavil). Unfortunately, my urologist tried to prescribe that one for me, but there was drug-drug interactions so can't take it. It is definietly good for nerve pain. Lula, it's not quite an anti-psychotic. More like a anti-depressant but it's not used much as an anti-depressant these days.
Thanks 😊 😊 😊 How did you know it didn't agree with you? Any mood help is pretty welcome at this point I've been feeling pretty crappy about myself. I have to go to work day after tomorrow so I hope that I'm not too wiped out still!
U will be fine hunni 🤗... i couldnt stay awake at all... it knocked me for six... 🏏so i went onto duloxetine (sister drug to prozac)... ✌ i have severe chronic fatigue tho... so i slept 16 hours a day... every day...and some! Lol course now im way past that... 🤗but it will help u, its a good medication 🤗
Fancypants, you can look up any rx on the drugs.com website. It gives lots of info like alternative names, dosing, uses, side effects, etc. I can't use it due to over sedation and hallucinations. I hope it works out got you. Hugs love & prayers! 🙂💕🙏🌸
