I have also taken Prozac for many years due to chronic pain. It has helped me in a lot of respects. I am not as overwhelmed as I used to be and suicide isn't an option any longer. So don't be afraid to ask for anti depressants and never feel ashamed. It hasn't taken the pain away by any means, just know that depression DOES go along with chronic pain and you are not alone
