Yes, I do. I've just been dealing with IC for the past 4 months and Elavil is the only medication that touches the pain. It really helps but I hate that it is so sedating. I am on Methadone 70 mg/day for chronic pain and Oxycodone 15 mg for breakthrough pain, Lyrica, Soma - none of these had made any difference to IC. Are you using Elavil now, and is it helping? I have made you a friend - if you like "friend" me also and we can write privately. Regards -
I have been taking Elavil for about 4-5 months now. I
have IC,insommnia,Fibromyalgia,pudendal neuralgia,IBS and a history of IBS, Elavil I take nightly to help sleep and it does help for IC pain some among other pain. You might want to ask the doctor about Cymbalta. Though this medication works well with some and not others I must admit it has been the only med to help at this point with my pain. The IC and Fibromyalgia have improved where I have cut my pain medication in half and some days 3/4. Let me know what you and your doctor decide.
