Back to amitriptyline, I found that I needed 50mg for relief to begin with but after DMSO treatments I had to go up to 150mg which is the upper limit in trials.

I have use ibuprofen, naproxin, celabrex, bextra, meloxicam and found that the doses that I required to help with pain was greater the prescibed dose and I end up with stomach pain from them.
