  • From this study (6 days ago):

  • Elavil, 25mg @ night stopped an 11 month chronic headache after a head injury, I sustained 1 1/2 years ago.
    Additionally, Neurologist prescribed 100 mg Lyrica for chronic back/nerve pain from moderate/severe spinal injuries, sustained 20+ years earlier. (Crushed/cracked verabrae and 3 intervertebral disc bulges)
    I had been using Ibuprofen daily in moderate to heavy dosage for the last 20+ years. (800+ mg daily B/4 and then continually after recent head injury)
    I was advised to stop/reduce use of Motrin to 1/2 month or less. It is still the best pain relief but have reduced to PRN, perhaps 200 mg alternate days.
    Since treatment with Lyrica I've noticed reduced nerve pain and stopped using Elavil for sake of not feeling so "wrecked" in the mornings. I have also developed a severe sleep apnoea, treated unsuccessfully via CPAP device which is unbearable to use. I have subsequently suffered with depression/mood disorder for 20+ years and am currently un-treated for this long-standing vulnerability which came back with a vengence after the head-injury. I feel irregularity to my heart beat by the end of the day. I feel suicidal and violently angry.
