Chronic Shoulder Neck Pain Use of Marijuana and Anti-depressants

From: comealiveguy - 1 year 46 weeks ago

I've been suffering with chronic pain situated in my left shoulder blade which radiates pain to the base of my neck. My doctor first prescribed Lorazepam, Oxycodone HCI/Acetaminophen which helped greatly, but the side effects became a problem. Recently my doctor prescribed Amitriptyline HCI an anti-depressant which I'm presently taking for the next 6 - 8 weeks along with follow-ups every two weeks. I'm un-able to take anti-inflammatory because of my stomach, because of over use of them. I'm presently using marijuana as a anti-inflammatory and as a relaxant which is working great. I no longer take Lorazepam (Ativan) or Oxycodone for pain.
