I’ve been on Amitriptyline 50mg for over 11 years for leg pain. The dosage has been reduced from 125mg. Today I received a call from the pharmacy that my Amitriptyline has been stopped. I called my GP and I was told NHS England guidelines now state that Amitriptyline can’t be prescribed alongside Fentanyl durogesic patches, OxyContin and Oxynorm. Last month the Amitriptyline was increased as my SCS isn’t working as well as it is supposed to. Last month my Amitriptyline was increased due to exacerbated leg pain. What can I do now? My GP has just given me a print out from NHS England saying that it shouldn’t be taken alongside opioids yet for the last 11 years no one said anything
