jago45 Posted September 8, 2010 Report Share Posted September 8, 2010 I've suffered all my life from chronic daily headaches and have had three episodes of depression. To make matters worse, I also take medication for reflux and hypertension. The depression seems to be controlled by Zoloft and diazepam (Valium), though I still feel a sense of malaise.My primary care physician prescribed Ultram for pain. It usually works. I saw a neurologist but he was of no help. I know that depression and pain are closely related. I was wondering about the advisability of seeing a neurologist who specializes in headaches or going to a pain management center or doctor (or something else). I understand that some antidepressants are useful for chronic pain and low doses of anti-seizure drugs are being tried.Anyone have any knowledge or experience in these areas?Jim Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
