Will amitryptiline help with frequency or is it just for pain? I have been perscribed it but i have more frequency at the moment.

Amitripyline is usually given for pain relief but perhaps your Doctor is hoping that by relieving your pain it might help reduce your frequency as your bladder won't be so angry all the time.

It can a little while to work but hopefully you'll get a good response from it soon

I took Amitriptyline for the pain which was good but side effects strong. My GP also prescribed Tolterodine 2mg twice per day which really calmed my bladder down too and I was able to retrain it. Am now on bladder instillations monthly for my IC and have come off both Amitriptyline and Tolterodine. Frequency /urgency are greatly reduced which is really helping.

Hi i was also prescribed amitryptline. It's a muscle relaxant and was used to relax the affected bladder therefore reducing the frequency. Mine was for night time use and did help me lot, along with other prescribed medication.

I am on amitriptyline at night.. currently on 50mg it has helped with pain I think but not with the sensitivity and urgency unfortunately 😣 I'm waiting on bladder installations but the list is extremely long and I'm going travelling in April and can't see them happening before then. Has anyone tried urostenol?? I just seen an ad on it on the tv and wondered did it help. I'm 26 btw 😊
