Amitriptyline/Elavil...how long for it to work?
My doctors are still undecided if I have TMJ or atypical trigeminal neuralgia, but my PCP went ahead and prescribed some amitriptyline 30 mg.  This is only my third day on it, but it does seem the pain has come down quite a bit; this is the ONLY medication that has ever helped at all.  

Is it possible the pain will come down even lower at that dosage.. is this one of those drugs where it takes weeks to take effect?  I don't want to increase the dosage yet if I can avoid it.
