I've been taking low-dose amitriptyline for Fibromyalgia for 20 years and it has made my life liveable again. When I reached Medicare age my doctor started receiving scary letters from them saying he had to switch me to something else because it is too dangerous for older people. It look me 8 years of trial and error to find something that worked for me. I think the higher doses used for depression are the problem but Medicare doesn't differentiate. I'm applying for an exception but my doctor says these are routinely refused. Help!
