I take it. How many mg will you be taking a day? i have been on it for two years. It took about two weeks to really see a difference but everyone's body is different. It works for me but we had to increase it again since I have gotten worse.

I take it too. It took a couple of weeks for me as well. It has worked well for me and I am on a low dose. I have heard there is a lot of wiggle room in dosages so you can go up if needed.

Hi all, thanks for comments much appreciated. They give me them a while back I was on 300mg 3 times a day. I took them for few weeks but we went on holiday and relax seem to help and I stopped them. I don't remember them making a difference though. Pains have been rough since back and wondering if to start them again. Doctors haven't given me anything else to take with it. I was on amytripaline but that made me a zombie and I refused to take it. My private doctor wouldn't give me anything else so put up with pain till got bad and went to nhs and they give me the new ones. I hate taking medication as think I'll be on them forever but not sure I can keep with the pain some days. I don't get burning or shooting pains I just get constant pains and ache in ankles, side of the top of my legs and wrists. Not sure what to do...
