    I went to the Dr. with severe foot pain. Dr. put me on 50mg a night 3 years ago and it has worked miracles. I was surprised when I read that this med was used to treat depression..

    It made me sleep all the time and I need to do work. Reading through these posts, I'd say it is toxic stuff. I wouldn't even put it near my mouth again.

Most pain patients do not get addicted.

    Taking 10mg nightly for longstanding gastric pain that does not respond to proton pump inhibitors all the time. Within 4 days of starting was finally able to sleep more than 2-3h per night. Recently experiencing agitation, raised heart rate, nightmares and panic attacks. Will be ceasing medication. Hope the effects last after stopping.
