    i did not have any patience with elavil...
    i have been on other similar meds that did not have the same after effect!
    don't blame you, Melissa...
    but i would talk to the doc

    Well I have stopped the Elavil and the hung over feeling is gone. Dr Bederman and I talked about it and I am going to give the Lyricia more opportunity to work

    Good to hear. I think mood has so much to do with pain. When I was at the height of the not being able to sleep issue, I felt like my pain would never go away. As my meds were reduced, I found I actually had less pain than when I was taking it.
