I was prescribed this drug for back pain by my physician. As I am reading the Drug Education Monograph I am finding out that Amitriptyline has
too many side effects and it will take up to 4 weeks before I will see any results. Is this drug worth the wait? Also, should I get a second opinion?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. As I dislike taking prescription medications in the first place I just wanted something to get rid of my back pain.
