Subject: Has anyone taken Endep

Hi all, Yesterday I went to my rheumy and he has taken me off mtx as my liver function is "off" I'm still taking pred and plaquenil but he's now put me on Endep10 as a muscle relaxer. Has anyone taken this? Is this a normal drug for RA? I was only diagnosed a few months ago so I'm still learning all about this disease and also how to cope with it all. Thanks for any help you can give me

I believe this is another name for Amitriptyline? I take Pred & Planquenil & have taken Ami in the past for back pain. It's an antidepressant, but used for pain in lower doses. I started on 10mg and increased it slowly, it completely wiped me out - I felt like a complete zombie on it, it took me 40mg to take away the pain, but could hardly function. I'm really glad I'm off it now & would be reluctant to ever go back on it again. Hope it provides relief for you though.

Hi Kimiann,
I agree with Nicola I was Amitriptyline and although was on a small dose it did help the pain and yes you feel like a complete zombie on it.
I only use it in time's of bad flare up's.
Sorry to hear you have been took off mtx as is it quite a good drug for RA.
Hope they will get you sorted with something else at least there is plenty of help out there. Deborah x

Thanks for the replies. It turns out my daughter took this as well, she felt the same as you. Guess I'll see how I go, feel pretty dopey at the moment. I'm going to have to find a new rheumy as mine will only be available in Sydney now, which is five hours away. Be interesting to see what I'm told then.
