I find amitriptyline 10 mg has an instant effect even if not taken on a regular basis. Is this ok
No you can't. Its not a pain pill, it works differently. You have to take it all the time to lessen the pain, you can't wait until you have pain and then take it. This kind of medications requires a blood level too and you won't have that with only taking it as needed. If you find that 10 mg of it works like a pain pill for you, and has an instant effect, then you are having a placebo effect from it. No pill works instantly.
