I would contact your doctor first thing tomorrow morning about
the depression with the methadone and find out what he suggests.
As far as the scs goes, I've read over and over about
the leads slipping and not giving the same coverage as one might get during the trial. I'm sure that doesn't help with the depression .
I'm sorry that you have had to deal with that as well.
Are you on medication for the Chrone's Syndrome and does it help? I am not that familiar with it but do know that it causes serious pain for sufferers.
Please let us know how you make out with the doctor tomorrow.
