Please give them ago as i have been taking 20mg each morning now for 10 years for my FM. I am not depressed but used to feel extremely down with being on constant pain 24/7. They are now well documented for the pain of FM.
My Rheumatoligist put me on them as i tried everything else and reacted badly to them so these saved my life and my sanity.
I was like you. Under no circumstances was i going to take anti-depressants but i gave in as by then i was at rock bottom.
Within 3 or 4 weeks it was my family that noticed a change in me and my pain levels started to decrease. I also felt like living again.
I hadn't slept properly either for about 2 years and after a while started sleeping through the night and have not looked back since.
Keep in touch and let us know how you get on with them.
I am not saying you won't have side-effects the first couple of weeks as you probably will. Mine was feeling nauseous but it wore off.
Hope this helps a little.
Take one day at a time. Tomorrow will wait.
