[QUOTE=LKB64]Hi, posting this Q for my boyfriend. (C4/C5 bulging disc(s) misdiagnosed for many months, surgery fusion Mar 04. MRI shows perfectly "healed" but he has been in continuous pain in arm & hand for over 1 year)
Pain doc started him on the anti-D Nortriptyline yesterday. Just wanted to know if any of you had any relief using this for pain. He started last night and has been very lethargic (2 naps already today, hasn't left the couch). I googled and see that is pretty normal. Wanted to know if that went away for you, or you get "used to it".
At this point, he's going so insane from the continuous level 10 pain, that sleeping doesn't seem like such a bad idea.
Was hoping to read someone's "good" response to this drug for pain.
