According to WebMD, Endip belongs to a class of medications called tricyclic antidepressants. It may be used to help alleviate symptoms associated with GBS, but does not appear to treat GBS itself. I think a good Neuro who is experienced with GBS/CIDP should be involved, if for no other reason than to provide a 2nd opinion.

I tend to agree with GH that it sounds like you might have the chronic form of GBS called CIDP, or one of its variants. There are other tests that can help determine GBS, CIDP and a good Neuro would know how to administer them for proper results.
