See below: Endep (amitriptyline) (amitriptylline) is a medication that is often used for fibromyalgia in certain people. One of the way it helps is that it causes drowsiness and helps people sleep which is a big problem in fibromyalgia. Because of its many side effects, it may not be well tolerated by older people. It should be avoided in people who have heart problems, prostate problems and glaucoma.
