    I've been battling arthritis in my shoulder/clavical. 9 of 10 on the pain scale. Five years and 15 doctors later I had a pain specialist prescribe 25mg 1/day Nortriptyline along with 200mg Gabapentin. Only the 2 meds together relieve my pain. Neither help alone.

    I am a male with two crushed discs in my back. I was prescribed this drug as an alternative to opiate pain medication twice in the last 10 years. Not only was this drug not effective for that use, but both times I experienced severe sexual dysfunction within the first month of use. Both times I had to stop use of the drug. I recovered sexual function after the first use 10 years ago, but after the ... Show Full Comment

Trying to stay at 10 mg at night. After 2 1/2 months I have moderate to severe joint pain in both shoulders. Started to have pain in my ribs and side if I sleep on my left side. I have some weight gain, started to get he ... Show Full Comment
