all meds are different for everyone. if your depressed there are other things for that. i think its time the doctors got together and reviewed what they give MS patients as a lot of them are physch drugs and now my daughter is trying to get off preglabin and its a horrible journey for her. she was on it for a nerve damage in her stomach, and was slowly put on 600mg which is the highest she is struggling to come off it, and its not supposed to be addictive yeh right tell that to her.
i think a lot of these drugs are nasty and so many people with chronic illness are put on them and never checked. they are on a cocktail of drugs.
I take nothing for my nerve pain. You would be better off on cbd oil to be honest but if your depressed then perhaps you just need to talk to your GP about that.
I am so upset over it all as my daughter is in a mess now. she trusted the pain clinic. preglabin just doesnt work anymore and there is no more she can take she cant go up. she started on 20mg and eventually ended up on 600mg as it just stops working over time.
You are not forced to take anything. I dont i choose not too.
