he claims he had a bad experience with another patient, never gave me the details, but I don't have problems with it, it is only good for the short term and alternate day therapy is the best, with a certain kind of cluster, prednisone about 10 mg will break mine in about 45 minutes, this other doc will only prescribe 25 20mg pills per year, so I strech it out, use it mostly awya from home where I don't have my concentrator, amitriptyene knocks me out in about an hour, can't keep my eyes open so don't like to use that on the road. I could never put weight on (6'1 1/2" 195 pounds until I started taking amitriptylene, a lady friend tried amitriptylene, made a choclate cake, but before she baked ate the whole bowl of dough, I went up to 240 pounds and was starving myself, back down to 200 now and hope I break this spell so I can get off of this drug, my colestrol count also shot over 280 while on amitriptylene, but when I get off it, it goes back down to around 125, you can always gain an immunity to the drugs you take, but never an immunity to these damn headaches.
