My neurologist prescribed Tofranil and he told me to take it if the pain gets too bad.
My psychiatrist kept on telling me to take Zoloft though I did manage to come out of one of the worst major depression in my life so far-- the last few months.
My friend, an anesthesiologist, told me to take antidepressant because, based on his past work with pain, antidepressant at low dosage seems to help alleviating pain-- while, seeing my happy face, he thought I must be loaded with a whole lot of antidepressant.... 8-O lol
Especially since, after these past 3 days of experimentation with Celebrex, I think Celebrex is not very agreeable with that stomach of mine, which has not been in much of, if any, agreement with me for some time-- to the extend that, given the nauseous feeling that simply won't go away, I am starting to wonder whether I am pregnant--- a manifestation of an immaculate conception, again... 8-O lol
Not to mention... everybody is telling me about the whole thing concerning... them Celebrex and them failing kidneys...
As a result, Tofranil or zoloft? That's the question? 8-O lol sigh
