I am currently taking 75mg of amitriptyline for three weeks and I haven’t seen any relief yet. How long does it take for amitriptyline to get rid of pain? My doc told me I could up my dose to 100mg at night. I’ve seen a few comments that amitriptyline cured some people, I have constant pain that’s a burning and stabbing pain even with the slightest touch.
I’m very sorry to hear you are suffering with this.
Reaction to amitriptyline is individual, so it is difficult to predict the extent of relief that you can expect.
amitriptyline does take at least 6 weeks to start having an effect on pain, so give it time.
