I asked my P.C.P. if my kyphosis will get worse and he reluctantly said "yes", he didn't want to give me bad news, like most docs don't like giving bad news to anyone if they really care about the feeling of patients. I take Paxil, what's the name of the anti-depressant that also relieves physical pain?
Cymbalta is one and I am on Elavil (amitriptyline) it is suppose to be for pain also. I do not have chronic pain. I take it for sleep and anxiety/depression. I can not tell you if it works as I have not been on it long enough to judge it. I did notice my neck pain from anxiety/stress is less, but that could be wishful thinking.
You can research all the reviews and ratings on both meds on the net.
I hope you find what will work for you.
Best to you.
