I've suffered from chronic pain for the past year and a half and have been depressed even longer. I also started having panic attacks last year(That's another story) before the accident that started the pain. I've been on several meds for the depression ( Celexa, Wellbutrin ) and also started taking Xanax in April after a chiropractor made the pain worsen(The panic attacks worsened also). My doctor has since switched me to Effexor XR which has helped a lot but I still have to take a Xanax once in a while to help control the pain and because I afraid of having another attack. I've recently seen a neurologist who's having me try Neurotin. It has helped also but the pain is still there. I have muscle spasms in my neck and he wants to do Botox injections. I'm scared to do this but I don't know what else to do.( It's not a disk problem) I'm afraid I'll have an attack during the injection. I need some advice. I'm afraid of becoming very depressed if the injections don't work. I've been told that they don't last long so I would have to go back for more. Sorry I made this long but please help.
I have to make a decision this week.
