Maybe I am on the wrong site. I have CP from four back surgeries Disk disease. I posted my story on the chronic pain site. I am very depressed and scared. I had a root canal today am hurting. I also took myself off of the Elavil related to being so bloated I was SOB. I cut my neurontin dose in half and my body is returning to me and my head is clearing. I couldnt think straight to function. I cant sleep now that I dont take the Elavil but I would wake up not remember if I took my other meds and the whole day I would feel like I drank the whole night before. I could barely get ready for work and drank 6 or 7 cans of MtDew to make 8 hours and I never drank caffeine before. I see a new doctor on 21st and hope it goes well. I am falling into a hole because I want my life back and dont know which antidepressant will work for me because I am so sensitive to meds

Hi Cshelp,

I'm sorry you are suffering with chronic pain and depression. It's awful to feel that you have no control over your life, and lots of us can relate to that feeling. I hope you can hang in there until your doc appt on the 21st. At that time, I would definitely talk about other options for meds, to see what is suggested. Keep notes of side effects for your appointment, because the various antidepressants work in different ways for different people! It sucks that you had a root canal on top of everything else. I wish I could be of more help, but I have trouble with med sensitivities, too. You certainly have my compassion and support.
