My left hand and wrist has been hurting me for the year due to a car accident..so today i went to the doctor today and he gave me a percription for elavil..im confused about it because i thought elavil was for depression...so why did he give them to me only if my wrist and hand hurts?
Your dr has lost his mind. lolol... It is used for chronic pain and helps, its not for acute pain. It takes weeks for it to start working. These docs are so afraid to order medications even for fractures and surgery that they order things that won't work. I would say take 2 advil 3 times a day, unless there is a reason you can't take advil. If it were me, I'm afraid I would have handed that script back to him.
