I have tried so many things to help alleviate the pain in my neck and upper back. Trigger Point and Facet Joint injections being the latest treatments. However, I still have the pain and the codeine cocktail just made me so constipated and ill. The doctor has just prescribed Nortriptyline, 10mg a day. I read the words, 'anti depressants' and am worried about taking them. Should I be? Has anyone else got an opinion on this please?
