No Rajive, your answer is spot on! These older antidepressants do help some with pain - that was listed as one of the things it does. So it is entirely possible this med will help with muscle pain. It wont be a direct effect - as in using a narcotic, rather it will be an indirect effect - that Is, over 4-6 weeks there will be a gradual difference. Whether it is enough pain difference, that is something only the patient can tell.
