Thanks for the input
forgot to add that due to having severe ADHD, Antidepressants don't work well for me.
With preventatives I suffered from a lot of side effects that made taking them rather unpleasant. Steps are taken to prevent addiction to the pain killers (only get 180 pills a year).
Ponstel is in the ibuprofen class, so wouldn't work for me. I think most of the NSAIDS are also in the ibuprofen class which is why I haven't taken them before.
