I was given endep (amitriptyline)10 to stop the urge and sensitivity down there. I feel it's started again, could it be a uti? Should I start taking endep (amitriptyline) for relief

I was given endep (amitriptyline)10 to stop the urge and sensitivity down there. I feel it's started again, could it be a uti? Should I start taking endep (amitriptyline) for relief

Don't use Endep (amitriptyline) now!: There are things you can do until this clears, but talk w/ your doctor about alternatives if it doesn't clear soon. Endep (amitriptyline) will NOT kill a UTI. Drink more water - lots! Try an OTC pill like AZO or Aussie equivalent. Read: http://www. Ic-network.
