I have Stage 5 CRPS and have been taking 75MG of Nortriptyline (Generic for Pamelor) at bedtime for a few years now.

I recommend this drug, but everyone is different and we all respond to medication differently, I hope Nortriptyline give's you the same hope in your treatment that it has given me.

Comment:
Extreme pain in both feet and numbness from diabetic neuropathy. Have tried just about every drug for condition, so far my fingers are crossed because I feel better, the constant pain is a lot better, can finally sleep thru the night, only negative so far is the foggy feeling but can handle that with the pain in the feet is better.
