I'm 29 and suffer from epilepsy and also after a crazy man tossed me around a massive amount of back pain. I also have scoleoses? haha, but now 2years after being on the same meds and nothing working, i have seen a new doctor and she is telling me i have fibromyalgia, and because of the pain and it taking away most my daily activities depression has also been a problem. Now she wants me on this venlafaxine and im already off balance and can hardly remember yesterday. im just so worried it wont help and could make my life worse. im already taking the celexa,mobic,norco,phenobarbital, and neurontin. she wants to wing me off celexa, and the neurontin add use the venlafaxine in place of. I just dont know
