Tricyclic antidepressants are suppose to help with some types of pain. I took it for anxiety many yrs ago and it did help. Then recently I took it again and it did nothing for my nerve pain, plus I had a difficult time sleeping unlike the first time I tried it. It will either make you tired or give you a lot of energy in the beginning until you reach the full therapeutic benefit which is around 6-8 weeks then everything levels out. You will feel more energy and probably sleep better and it may help your kind of pain. Everyone one is different, as what helps one person may not help another. You will only know how you react to it by taking it. I wish you the best! ... take care
