I Have a question, first of all I'm not usual a depressed person. I have chronic back pain 10yrs I suffered meningitis from a epidural steroid injection in Dec. Second time it has happened but body must react to this procedure. It really has the Doc.'s wondering. Anyway I went to the pain dr. and ended in tears. The surgeon I saw last week told me I have just been through allot and have time to get it back together. Well the pain Dr. thinks I should begin a 6 months regimen of Effexor for depression. I take so much stuff for pain I really hate to add anymore mess to my body. I have been having periods of crying but pull myself out of it. They told me it was up to me. I'm giving it a few days to think about it , just wanted some feedback?
