This appears to be very rudimentary report that as a result of vast amounts of time spent to reveal very little. One wonders why. Gabapentin is safe without any reactions. Amazing. Amitirptyline didn't cause any starnge mental reactions? Well
From this study (4 years ago):
Small red bumps all over my body. It is extremely itchy. So far it is going on day 4.
