Re: my new pcp

All of the meds you mentioned are often used for pain, though they may not have been developed primarily as pain meds (with the possible exception of Cymbalta, which was expected to be as effective as previous antidepressants in relieving nerve pain.) When meds are used for purposes other than what they were developed for, that's what is known as "off-label" use, even if the meds become more commonly used for these other uses. Basically, these off-label uses generally come about when beneficial side-effects are noted with the drugs' use. Viagara is one of the more recent and well-known examples of this (having been designed as a drug for lowering blood pressure.)

As for having you sign a medication contract, that's common practice for pain management physicians, regardless of the meds or other therapies they might prescribe.
