    Not personally but my mum started taking it for chronic back pain (NOT for anxiety). She had to stop taking it because she said it made her feel spaced out from the world, sort of like she wasn't part of her body. It's important to remember though that no matter how many people tell you about their experiences, you could have a completely different experience with it and it could totally work for you smile

      Thankyou,Chenise. Yep ive been told its marvelous for chronic pain. I dont feel spaced out,just a bit drowsy but ive still got my facultys lol.

      My specialist stressed there were side effects involved but not severe enough to stop taking them.

      Ive been told they are also a antidepressant & tbh Idk how to feel about that.

      Im not used to taking tablets.

      Try not to let the fact it's an antidepressant put you off, it has many uses even though it's labelled as one.

      Especially if the tablets are going to help you, it wouldn't be fair on yourself if you stop taking them because of their label. Just remind yourself you know the reason you're taking them, whether that's for chronic pain, as an antidepressant etc. Hope all goes well smile
