Interesting: Your regimen must center around using the best meds for psychiatry that help pain. Most docs that deal with psychopharmacology have their regimen to help pain. Make sure you take some zantac (ranitidine). Mirtazapine 15 mg at night helps sleep, appetite and mood and can be used synergistically with other meds. Mirtazapine is cheap but may not be adequate. I could review meds but don't wanna solicit, sleep?
