>That's a really good idea - I'll talk with my Uro about it.

The thing is, after long-term treatment, you don't always know what a particular med is doing until you reduce it. There is a possibility of symptoms such as temporary sleep disturbances on reducing amitriptyline (in anyone), but if you have increased pain or urinary urgency, you might decide that it actually was helping a little. In that case, you might want to stay on a small dose and add something else. If your symptoms stay the same, you may decide to stop (gradually) and try something entirely different.

>Have bought the Cetirizone (Zyrtec) today to trial - figure I may as well try the OTC stuff first. Will give it a month.

That makes sense. There is nothing to lose by trying it. It doesn't usually cause side effects. If it helps, that's great. If not, you can just stop it without a problem.

>I think Gabapentin is def a possibility. I've made a spreadsheet of all the possible choices that I'm going to take to my Uro next month. :)

Gabapentin is essentially a treatment for chronic pain. Although it's mainly used for nerve pain/neuropathic pain, it is something tried for other types of chronic pain. It might be an option if pain is the main issue. Gabapentin does not interact with many other medications, so can be used alongside most common meds if necessary.

It's actually OK here since yesterday. Most of the snow has melted!
