Hi everyone! My dr just gave me a prescription of Nortriptyline for my chronic pain and nerve damage in my lower back. I've had 3 lumber fusions since 2016. My L3-L4 and L5 have all been fused together. I've got osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, edema in both hips, fibromyalgia and a few other things that are going on with me. This med is supposed to help you sleep all night without pain. I take it at bedtime...And it is supposed to continue to work throughout the next day. My 1st dose was last night, well I've been awake since around 12:15 am, it is now 7:22 am. I'm praying that this med starts to work soon.I am wondering if any of you have taken Nortriptyline for chronic pain and if so how much, if any, did it help you?
