Chronic Shoulder Neck Pain Use of Marijuana and Anti-depressants

From: comealiveguy - 2 years 4 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.
