Antidepressants ?

Antidepressants ?

I was just reading article about Fibromyalgia treatments and it stated patients have been given antidepressants that help with pain etc. Seeing sometimes MS has such similar symptoms as fibro I was wondering if anyone here takes antidepressants for MS and if it helps ?

I take Paxil and Neurontin and neither help the Fibro. I took Cymbalta and Lyrica and wanted to dive under a truck. Neither helped, so they put me on Lortab as I am allergic to other pain meds.I still hurt but don't care as much.

I think thry're probably talking about Amitryptyline, which is an older antidepressant, or Cymbalta, which is relatively new.
