I have depression (61yrs ) (had it for 7yrs didn't know what I had only found out 3 yrs ago). I am only on PAROXETINE (6mths) I was on 40mg but I put on so much weight its not bloody funny so I wanted to stop taking them & my doctor(hopeless) said yes & try another... as I was slowing down I started getting so many aches & pains every where in my body... Especially in my nipples & private part... I can't touch my nipples, I am in so much pain if I do... If I walk or do the shopping when I come home sit for awhile & get up I can't, I am in such pain you have no idea... I put my feet on the ground & it hurts like hell but I have to try & walk I keep going & it goes away a bit but with the both they are there all day ever day... these aches & pain r worst than having depression & no pills will make u better I have had 6 different ones & they r all crap... I was such a healthy active working person now I am crap & no one helps us... so what is the answer for my pains...
Hello. First I would like to suggest you find a new Doctor if you can. Ask your Doctor to do a full blood test with Thyroid function levels.
There are other tests he can do for sex hormones and I also suggest he test your adrenal glands.
What do you think caused the depression in the first place? Please get these tests done then we can talk about the results. Is you depression medication working? If you are still depressed ask your Doctor to change it.
Best of luck,
