    I posted the question a few weeks ago about starting on trazadone. I went back for a two week checkup this morning. Dr said I was doing great. I was taking 3 to 4 flexeril and 1 to 2 lortab daily for the pain before I started on trazodone. I have only had to take 1/2 lortab in a week and I'm only taking 1 flex at night with 50mg traz. He told me to start taking 100mg traz every night and I would probably be able to get off the rest of the meds all together. I've even lost 13 lbs in 2 mths since i've been of elavil. Not to mention the increase in sex drive. Hubby is very happy. LOL.

    Dear Hurts2003 - that is fantastic that the Trazadone has done this for you. For me it was a wonderful sleeping aid, regrettably I still had pain upon wake up.

    I say Yippi to you - I could not be happier that you have found the right medication combination that will help you become painfree again. I'd do a backflip - but I never be able to get out of the tangle LOL.

    Soft Hugs to you!!!
