53yr old been given venlafaxine for flushes that are NOT menopause related... had hysterectomy in my late 20s... Have lots of back pain, shoulder & bowel ops previously & still have probs. Also horrendous migraines.Lower back pain which makes legs shake and judder!! Doc suggests yet more tabs to try. I was annoyed to find out past 4 lots have been antidepressants which have made various side effects unbearable.
On tramadol/Zydol for pain.
