> The doctor should be fine with prescribing a TCA as he has tried amitryptaline with her last year in an attempt to try and allow her to get some sleep. Her Sinus pain is bad enough that she's spent the last 5 years or so having to take 60 mg of di-hydrocodeine every night but she still sleeps very few (less than 4) hours a night.

I've never heard of such a nasty sinus problem. Is it associated with other really bad allergy symptoms? If so, maybe she should try the allergy shots. If it's just the sinus pain, has she had X-rays or any imaging done of her sinuses? There could be something wrong that has to be fixed surgically.

Has she had the skin test for allergies? If so, what is she allergic to?
