Jean, I am on Amytlriptelene (sp) I have been on it for almost 3 years. I haven't noticed a big difference, but my dr. increased it a couple of weeks ago. It is supposed to help with pain as well as depression. My pain level has increased somewhat as well as being depressed with the pain. Some times I feel like my spirit is doing a downward spin. Good luck to you, hope you find something that will work for you. Maybe amytriptelene would work. kel -------Original Message------- From: Date: Sunday, January 27, 2002 11:56:16 PM To: Multiple recipients of list ADHESIONS Subject: Anti-depressants? Does anyone know a GOOD anti-depressant that doesn't make you into a zombie, upset your stomach, make you gain weight, or constipate you?

Also....what is the difference in an anti-depressant and a nerve pill, if
I have bad nerves and am depressed much more lately so maybe I need help to
get over it.

I'm not sure what I need or if my body will even tolerate them, but I think
maybe I should check into something for it.
The pain doctor even mentioned it to me because she thinks it may help me.  
She said since I have had to endure so much in my life, and especially the
past 2 years, that I should be getting help to deal with that in addition to
the pain.

My system doesn't tolerate very much though and I MUST be capable of
Putting weight on would only depress me more.
Many years ago I was on something for my nerves and/or depression (don't
remember what) and it was terrible! 
I was just a zombie, just wanted to sleep, didn't care about anything
anymore, and couldn't think or even feel my body. 
I went from one extreme to the other (from worrying about everything to not
caring about anything)!!
I DON'T want that again, and that is why I have been shying away from them.

I want to care (just not to extreme), be happy go lucky again, and have
Any advice?
