Hi Al:
Caught your message before work this a.m. My wife used low dosages of amitryptylene (It's an anti depresant) and, if I recall correctly was used more to control her salivating. I don't recall it being used for cramping... but it was a while ago. She was on Baclofen (?)as a muscle relaxant for cramping and it helped with her walking early on.
Hope this helps... good luck!
