Old tricyclic antidepressant for nerve pain works well?
I came across pain doc Ian Carroll's you tube video, and I am going to ask my pain doc to prescribe Desiprimine. It is an old time tri cyclic antidepressant and Dr. Carroll says it is beats all other meds for nerve pain. It is not readily prescribed because it is cheap, with little incentive for Big Pharma to push it. It can be measured in blood plasma to make sure it is at a therapeutic dosage, and is well tolerated. Young docs may not even know of it. I am going to try to attach the you tube video I saw, and about 41 minutes into the video, you will hear about Disiprimine. Here goes. My computer skills are lacking. https://youtu.be/v8CP-rfqp0s Wow! I did it. Please listen to this Doctor. His intelligence is palpable. Lori Renee
