Had a diagnosis last month and l have other health issues. I was on an antidepressant called duloxitine and came off it due to the compatibility against glaucoma...

I have a condition that leaves me in a lot of pain hence the duloxitine ,it was used for pain... Please can anybody advise me on what I can take that is compatable. I'm suffering and have changed another pain medication that is not helped. Sorry for posting this but I have researched as much as I can and coming to a brick wall and no where to turn..

Thank you for taking the time to read this post

      Hi mark, I have high pressure in both eyes...after checking up disease interactions, it states glucoma as one...I would love to try it, but I am afraid it will increase pressure more. Have you any problems with this..??

      Hello Mariano, the Amitriptyline only helps me sleep.It doesn’t help MS pain. I have tinnitus as well.. Not sure what interacts with Glaucoma. I have had an MRI scan and now have a hearing aid in one ear.Hope you get better . X
