Elavil is also amitriptyline which is used for depression, neuropathy, migraines, and fibromyalgia. It is also used to lower blood pressure. I was on it for ten years, and it was awesome. I no longer have migraines. Even though I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, I don’t think I have it. I do gave chronic pain and peripheral neuropathy – a pain med that might help you instead of hydrocodone is tramadol. I am on so many meds for a debilitating lung disease (never smoked) that I stopped the Elavil – I saw your post and thought that it might be a great choice for you. I am overly careful with pills because I am old and small. Hope you feel better soon. Quality of life is sooo important. Irene

Elavil is no longer on the market and Amitriptyline is and since it is an old drug, it’s way cheaper. I was just prescribed this but uneasy about taking it because I have tried so many other stuff that did nothing but make me worse. Norco, not an option in Florida due to the opioid epidemic and that was the only thing that gave me a better quality of life. CBD, lyrics, cymbalta, and about 20 other anti depressants,muscle relaxer,etc did nothing. My depression and pain is at the worst now and mood shifts and triggers that cause me to become so angry that they can be explosive. Doctor said he wanted me to take these to help my pain,depression and insomnia etc. I am tired of meds and already take lunesta to sleep but pain prevents quality of what sleep I do get. Virus makes things harder because what if I have a reaction and there is no help then what. I pray for God to tell me what to do. It might be be the one that works but then again I did try it in 2017 and I felt like I had a hangover the next day and felt crappy. Then again the multiple doctors had me on so many different drugs, I don’t know if it was that or combination of the hundreds of things going wrong in my body that was dismissed and every time I saw someone I was told to take this or that drug instead of getting to the root issues. Curious if anyone with fibro, ptsd, depression, nerve damage, spinal stenosis,peripheral nerve damage etc had good results. Thx
