elavil is an OLD antidepressant barely used for that purpose these days. It has as a peculiar side effect: the ability to decrease the sensations of PN - and it is dirt cheap. Particularly noted in diabetic PN, it has since been used in all PN type patients. It is not addictive, and low doses may work well...the synergy between neurontin and elavil can be impressive in some folks...nonetheless, everyone is different so no guarantees in medicine.

guess i should stop clogging up Johan's GB with medical stuff.

good luck Denise!

Yes, I take a low nightly dosage of Elavil for a purpose that I can't really depict on the GB...but I'll just state that it still harbors its advantages, though probably not for what Denise is enduring.  Yet I'm not a physician, and I'm certain that she and her own doctor will discover the right cocktail for her symptoms. 

You're in my thoughts, Denise!
