I have been depressed for 30 some years after complete hysterectomy i was prescriribed this med for depression pain ie neuropathy back stenosis with bulged disks lumbar 4-5 and overeating with weight gain im concerned about adverse reactions and indications for my problems
It is used for neuropathy. You need an antidepressant for the depression and I'm not convinced it will help with the actual pain of the discs. Were you put on hormones after your hysterectomy? I would ask my dr to check my hormone levels, because depression and weightgain can be a result of your hormones being off.
