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.

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 ...

Small Blue Pill 10 On One Side Blank Other side, what are they? ## Hi Star, While I haven't come across an exact match, I did find information leading me to believe that this pill is most likely manufactured by Apotex, Canada.
