    I talked to a few of you a few months ago about my physical conditions due to fibromyalgia.I've not been able to work in over 2 years.My doctor has put me on Elavil (Amitripyline) and I can't believe how much it has helped me.I've now started looking for a job and feeling alot better.I still have problems lifting or certain positions for long periods,but my regular day-to-day pains have almost disappeared.I have an appointment in a couple of days and can't wait to tell my doctor how much he's helped me.The medicine is an anti-depressant,but doctors found it to help patients with chronic pains.I'm taking 50mg vs the 200mg they give for depression.If anyone else out there has or knows someone who has fibromylgia,please try this.
