    I am thrilled. Slept like a baby last night for the 1st time in years. I hope this is not a fluke. Amitriptaline (elavil) was prescribed last month 25mg. This and pain meds are all I take so it must be the elavil kicking in.
    When I was a young mom (many moons ago) this drug litterly saved my life. Was a pain/sleep thing way back then too.
    Thank you Jelly for recommending this drug and jogging my memory.
    Be Blessed,

    I use elavil for sleep and nerve pain. It makes a big difference. I started with 10mg and am up to 50mg, sometimes 75mg. I will probably use a muscle relaxer pretty soon as a rotation type medication. I do not want to keep going up on the Elavil and still want it's effectivness. I have been taking Elavil for a good 6-7 months now.

    Happy here...glad it works for you too.
