I got a call from my doctor yesterday, she wanted to put me on prednisone, but had to talk to my GI doctor (they work in the same office) before prescribing because I have an ulcer in my colon and it flares up with anti-inflammatories. I am suppose to be taking Pantasa for it, but decided not to because I can't take it while breastfeeding and my GI doc is not comfortable with me taking prednisone without taking the pantasa. After talking for a while she decided to prescribe Paxil (paroxetine), which is an antidepressant, hoping it will help with the pain as well. Have you heard of this? I have not started taking it yet and would like to get some opinions. Thanks!

Yes, I have heard that some antidepressants help with pain. I take Cymbalta for depression, but am assured by my rheumy that it also helps with pain.

Good luck!
