The first time I went on anti d's it worked very well. Not sure about its usage for chronic pain though,

It will take about 3-4 weeks untill you get thereputic levels there for 3-4 weeks to prob notice any difference.

Take care and :welcome: to the forum

thanks

your poor mum. i have nerve pain too due to a screwed up ceasaren i had a trapped fermoral nerve then a laparoscopy after cos i had loads of adhesions. i dont sleep at all even on sleepers and valium every morning i wake up and want to kill myself as my aniexty is so sky high and am in so much pain i also have muscle weakness. fed up to say the least i have had to beg to see my mental health worker cos im at my wits end literally. i am due to have another laparoscopy but scared to go to hospital as i have been through hell and back with mucked up operations. i live on a army base and its in the middle of nowhere. i feel so alone in my screwed up head. hope it helps.thanks for listening.
