I have high levels of anxiety and also have back pain from a number of problems. Will the amitriptyline take care of either or both? Have taken clonazepam and norcos for my symptoms and have now been prescribed amitriptyline and really don't what to expect. My doc also put me on paxil a few months ago and it has done absolutely nothing for my anxiety... clonazepam helped but my doctor took me off of it and I don't really know why. Any tips on how I can get prescribed to it again or something similar like aprozolam??? Have mini panic attacks from time to time and am also afraid to go to public places or to interact in social settings due to my anxiety. Can't sleep because of the constant worrying along with other typical problems associated with anxiety... HELP!!! thx
