Customer Question

I'm currently on amytriptyline for pain and sleep. It has been very helpful to me. I am concerned I may have a high prolactin level and am experiencing acne and hair loss. I'm wondering if I would have the same experience on Cymbalta
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: I have Anklyosing Spondylarthritis and have had it for 10 years. Honestly, the amytriptyline has helped me more than any other drug.
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?
Customer: I am not on suppressants yet
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.
