Pain and Anti-Depressants

May I ask how many of you take anti depressants as part of your PM cocktail?

I am curious. If you are comfortable sharing, what do you take?

I know that for some of us there is a stigma or hesitancy to take "another pill."

I take Cymbalta and Wellbutrin XL (low dose because of the Cymbalta.)

I am thrilled with my cocktail. I know it's frustrating not to get the proper cocktail first time round, but I believe that the "cocktail approach" is helpful for my pain (chronic thoracic pain post- pulmonary embolism and SLE (lupus.))

Have you found that these drugs help depression and/or pain?


Thanks, all.

Best,

Amethyst
