- DX FIBRO
Does anyone on this forum take Tramadol for depression purposes? If so, does it help and what MG do you take. I was on Cymbalta which treats depression and fibro but it was working for the depression so he took me off and started me on something new leaving me with nothing to treat the fibro. I had a total shoulder replacement in Oct. of 2015 and when I ran out of Oxycodone the doctor that did the surgery put me of Tramadol for the pain. It seems to help somewhat with the depression but I am on a very low dose. I was wondering if a higher dose might be effective. I haven't been able to discuss this with my PCP because he has been on medical leave since mid December. I have an appointment with him today and plan to bring the subject up. Hopefully he will be willing to increase the dosage and we can get my depression under control.
