I did some research on this last night. Pain pills are a depressant. Pain is a depressant. It makes sense that they would add anti-depressants to the PM program. I sure as heck know that I am depressed and I am not on anything right now. The pain is crippling me. But, if I take the anti-depressants, there is always the paradoxicl/opposite effect of spiriling into deeper depression.
One needs to weigh the pros and cons. With anti-depressants it is a tricky one. They take weeks to take effect and if you respond by sinking deeper into depression, it is not easy to just stop taking them.
I want happy pills, give me happy pills
I was watching a show about addiction last night that stated, "Drugs numb pain and feelings, be it physical or psychological. Addicts know this, this why there will ways be addicts".
So, they give you pain pills to stop the pain, which in turn causes depression, so they have to give you anti-depressants.
