In case Jenna doesn't come back soon, amitriptyline is Elavil, an old tricyclic anti-depressant, also used as a sleep aid. I'm on 25mg to help me sleep - which it does wonderfully - but down side is I've put on 10 lbs and none of my clothes ...

... wide range of dosing. 800mg three times daily would be a common dose and I have heard of neurologists prescibing much higher than that. Also amitriptyline in small doses at night is often used with some benefit in patients with chronic pain. Anti-inflamatories on a daily basis might help ...

BFS Symptoms Prior to Onset of Twitching

... I found out about BFS. I finally found a neuro who gave it a name. It ain't no picnic but it sure beats the alternative! I am taking 50 mg. of amitriptyline--25 a.m. & 25 p.m. If nothing else, I get a good night's sleep each night. If you are well-rested, I think you can cope with about anything.[/u]
