Excellent review article in the Journal of Clinical Rheumatology
I've chosen a liquid formulation for taper up. Trying not to be too optimistic -- it seems to work in a certain subset of people very well, and not so much in others. An informal poll at Patients Like Me suggested about half and half.
I have an awful time with other pain meds and am hoping this will work so I can lose amitriptyline (as I have lost gaba, lyrica, nortriptyline, cymbalta, etc.) Argh. The only two I can use at all, at low doses, are Lyrica and amitriptyline, but higher doses the adverse effects outweigh any benefits.
Should be interesting, either way.
