    Thanks for the quick answer about the ABX! Did you read my other post back to you the other day about the Amitriptyline (after you said you loved puzzles?) Anyway, I know you've done great on it for a long time . . . I took it for six months and almost felt back to my old, healthy self! Back then I didn't realize what it was doing or what I had & didn't back off a little when it started giving me next morning sedation . . . I stopped completely! What a fool I was (if I'd only known) . . . I tried last fall to go back on it, but now it makes me so hyper I can't sleep (and that is 1 mg.!) I am wondering since I've been off of it for awhile whether I could try it again and maybe something could have changed?? Wishful thinking I believe, but have you ever known anyone else that this happened to and do you have any idea if reactions like that can change back? Thanks!!!! Terri

    I started way back then at 2.5 mg (1/4 tablet) and in a month was up to 10mg each night . . . should have backed off after the 6 mos when I started being drowsy 'til noon everyday . . . then I started again months later, but had become so sensitive to meds that i could only take 1 mg . . . was going to work up but after 1 week of good sleep, suddenly three nights in a rowe I WAS bouncing off the walls at 1 mg.

    I think after I see the immunologist tomorrow I'll try it again . . . it definitely does something to the immune system so I don't want to take it pre-testing. Terri
