: Couldn't get to your email so have to respond to your message on the board. I have tried DayPro, Celebrax, Motrin, Etodolac, Naprosyn, and Viox. Currently am in a blind arthritis study so not sure what I am on, but it is not helping the pain in the wrist. Right hand is only one effected. Had been fine up until I started second phase of the study. Do a lot of computer work, so it is getting worse. I was given some information recently about magnet therapy but with a gauss rating above 2000. aslo was suggested I try Colloidal Silver and antioxidants to get rid of inflammation by taking a product with 25 mgs
: each per caplet of grape seed, pine bark, and turmeric extract.
: Look on internet for more info as I plan to do and will contact my doctor to see what he thinks.
: Good luck, Kathy

I've had some luck taking Amitriptyline. one of my friends takes the 10mg tabs I'm up to 25mg tabs 3 times a day. it helps calms down the nerves in your hand. If you decide to use the magnets get two pairs of the mini mags as they will easily fit under your wrist splints.
I too wear my splints 24/7 ....have developed quite the CTS tan :)
