I have been on fluoxetine for a couple of years and feeling good ., after suffering severe depression.
I have recently been diagnosed as needing a knee replacement , and getting a lot of nerve pain.my GP took me off fluoxetine and I started amitryptaline and after starting with 10 mg have been on 50 mg for around 2 months. after feeling so fogged up and slow for weeks, also gaining weight ,I have had enough.I stopped a week ago , and feel pretty low now . The pain has not returned yet , but I am sure it will. I want to restart fluoxetine, but ask is there a nerve pain relief I can take along with it, without the awful side affects .( my husband said I had become a different person whilst taking amitryptaline , and not a nice one)
