Spinal fractures - linked to long term use of Prednisolone?

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies


Thanks so much for your positive input to my falls and recuperation whingefest!


My general practitioner (GP) has now referred me back to my local Sclero specialist- hopefully prior to my September Royal Free Rheumatology appointment - to see what he suggests re. onward treatment and osteoporosis recuperation.  


GP has also referred to a physio as it is my great belief that unless we keep moving we stop altogether!  The first three sessions have given me some tips on how to manage movement and so far it seems to be working, unless I do too much in which case pain is not easy to get a handle on, but amytriptyline short term at least allows me to sleep.  Will come off this as soon as I can though.


Your kind support and advice is great. Thanks.

Hello Sue


I was on 75mg of amitriptyline for a few years and found it easy to come off, slowly does it though, glad it and the physiotherapy are helping. Amitriptyline is very good for neuropathy when prescribed at a higher does, like 75mg and that's what I had it for.


Take care.
