Hi there, my problem is complicated. Im on 50mg elavil and 200mgs of gabapentin. Recently I have been experiencing burnt tongue or mouth syndrome. Dr wants to up gabapentin to 300 to treat tongue. We first took away 1 of elavil to help stop dry mouth situation. Now I'm also experiencing salty tast in mouth. This is miserable. I also have fibro and depression. Hence the use of these drugs. Anyone else experiencing these mouth systems? ## Omg I happened to see your post and am experiencing the exact same thing on exact same meds and fibro and depression. Now on one half of 25mgs elavil to wean me off of that and switch me to doxapin. Staying on 300 gabapentin. Which they seem to want to keep increasing gabapentin to treat tongue.

round brown red pill no markings generic for elavil

For many years, I have taken 25 mg of amitryptyline, a small green pill. For my last refill, I received a brown pill with the marking I 2. Is this brown pill, possibly by another company, still 25 mg? ## I jus was doing a search for an answer for this exact same question. I am going to take them to the pharmacy and ask if these are, indeed, generic Elavil. It seems I haven't been getting the same effect from these.

oxicodone15 mg and elavil 50 together

Im having severe adhesion pain im taking 15 mg of oxicodone twice a day,and im in real bad pain rt now i have 50 mg elavil that i use to take,i dont feel like going to the emergency room ,and i already left a message for my dr..i use to take 10 mg momorphine with elavil but my dr changed my pain pill.please let me know if its safe tofether..thanks ## Hello, Wylacki! How are you feeling? Elavil isn't an analgesic, so it's not something you can take as needed to help with your pain. It is a tricyclic antidepressant, so it can help with some types of pain, but in order to do so, it needs to be taken consistently for several weeks, before it reaches a therapeutic efficacy level in your body. If you need immediate pain relief, then you should contact your doctor to see what would be ...

pms zopiclone/elavil

car accient caused me from baley sleeping and in alot of pain, t11 collapsed wanna know if there something different to use, cause they seem to barley work ## Hi, i've been taking PMS Zopiclone for a couple of years, and suddenly they stopped working. Can any one tell me why that is ?. I would really like to know! ## Hi, the reason they have stopped working is because you have developed a tolerance to them. This happens with many, if not all sleeping meds. You may wish to talk to your doc about going on a higher dosage or perhaps changing to a different medication. I find it helps to take them every other day, or even once every third night to stop your body from getting used to it. Changing to ambien may help or going from one script of ambien for one course then back to zopiclone ...

Elavil 2103 yellow pill

I found a round yellow pill with 2103 on one side, can you please identify this pill for me? ## I located your round pill to be Amitriptyline HCl (50 mg).

It is also used as sleeping aids in small doses of usually 25 mg, and for diabetic retinopathy. For information about this drug, please refer to the link below... If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to help you.

no imprint round light blue pill

supposed to be elavil ## If there is no imprint then it is not a legal U.S. prescription tablet for Elavil. All prescription tablets sold in the U.S. are requited to have markings on them, to enable their identification. Where was it obtained? ## A friend's son was asking me about his Elavil, he noticed it did not have an imprint and I work in a pharmacy as a tech., he was wanting to know what it was. I did not know so I went to your site. He goes to a Government funded clinic here in Georgia, and has Medicaid.

oblong small white pill ## Could you look at the identifying numbers/letters closer as I don't seem to be able to find this pill even in the electronic PDR. Thanks. ## The L is capped. Maybe that was the mistake? ## This is a medication called Elavil or amitriptalyne (I don't exactly know how to spell the generic name.) Anyway, it is commonly used for depression but has also been used for people who have a lot of nerve pain or nerve damage like foot neuralgia from diabetes., etc. It is non-narcotic but can make you very tired. Doctors use it for a sleeping aid as well for folks. Hope this helps. ## I have a few more if you don't mind. I found a bottle of random pills.
