OK, have been prescribed pain killers for a few years. I was getting 180 norco and 60 Kadian for pain. I moved to WA and have been with out meds for a while. I went through minor withdrawls, no sleep, fatigue, no motivation runs, etc. Now I got my Dr up here and am getting a referal, and more meds. I am kinda wanting to shy away from the pain meds and deal with the pain, but instead go on an anti depressant, anxiety medication. I have symptoms of dresion an anxiety. At this point as well as getting rid of pain, I am just looking to get my self level. I have no motivation, no love or joy to do anything. typical depression and anxiety symptoms. But also the symptoms you get after being off meds. SO! My question is, should I get the meds to treat my pain and get the depression/anxiety meds. Or just the later. I know the pain meds will get me to that, normal mental level as well as help with the pain. what will the anti depresants and anxiety do? Will it get me to that, 'joy of living' motivated secure state? Make scence? I'm a little off so if this don't make scence, I appologize. What do you think?
