Yes: Amitriptyline (elavil) and nortriptyline (pamelor) have been shown to potentially be effective in reducing pain associated with fibromyalgia.

Yes: Pamelor (nortriptyline) is the trade name for nortryptilline. It is an older medication used for fibro. There are newer meds with fewer side effects but if this is working, keep on it and good luck.
