Hi everyone I just started seeing a new Rheumie and I really enjoyed our first appointment, she was really informative. She decided to start me on some new meds and one of the questions she asked me during our meeting was did I want her to prescribe me a anti-depressant for all that I am going thru right now. I told her no I did not want to take anything for depression, if I could just get my pain under control and lose some of this weight that the prednisone has put on I would be just fine. I specifically told her that I did not want anti-depressant because of the side effects. So she said ok and that she was just going to give me something to help me sleep, planquniel, and soma to relax my muscles. Well when I picked up my meds from the pharmacy I was a little surprise to see a insert about taking anti-depressants and sure nuff when I read the little booklet that they give you with the meds one of them was called Elavil and though it does help you to sleep the main thing that it treats is depression and mood disorders. I don't know what I should do because if I had not read up on what she gave me I would have been taking something that I told her that I did not want.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
