If you feel up to it at some point, it may be worth trying out some other options like anticonvulsants such as lyrica (pregabalin), neurotin (gabapentin), or tegretol (carbameprazine I think), or some antidepressants like endep (amitriptyline
, a tri-cyclic), effexor (venlafaxine
, a NSRI), or prozac. All of these act upon the central nervous system, and
all of them have some success at reducing the levels of chronic pain.
