I am in so much pain I sleep maybe 1-2 hrs per night. I had an ACDF 3-08 C5-6, C6-7. I have neuropathy. Spinal stenosis lumbar L5-S1. Numbness, unbelievable burning. Myelopathy. Have tried numerous therapies, tens unit, injections. I have vocal cord damage from surgery can only whisper, I choke on my foods. Anyway this is just a brief history. My PM dr recently changed me from Lyrica to Neurontion due to change in insurance issues. I no longer work I am on SSDI and LTD (which I am so grateful for)
My questions is has anyone been given Elavil to help with sleep at night? I was given a small dose 10 mg. and all it did was make me hyper. I did not sleep even for one minute. It was just awful. I of course stopped the medication and will discuss with my PM at my next appt. Just wondered if anyone has tried this and if they had any success with this medication.
Thank you for any input.
