No, I haven't tried Amitriptyline, although other people have recommended it to me - and Zopiclone too, actually. I think I'd be semi-comatose most of the time if I took both of those!
10 hours sleep every night?? If only I could afford the time for that!
Seriously though....I do take sleeping pills sometimes (Zolpidem) and they do actually work, but I didn't want to become reliant on them (or resistant to them) so I only take them very occasionally. And I don't like taking them when I have to get up for work, because sometimes they work a bit too well!
I don't actually have too much pain at night - it's not really that which keeps me awake. It's more of a psychological thing - sometimes I keep myself awake, if you see what I mean!
Thanks for the suggestions though. What other meds are you on, if you don't mind me asking?
