Karen, Thanks for getting back to me. The Anti-depressant she prescribed is Pamelor. It says right on the CVS pamphlet that it is sometimes used to block nerve pain. You said you felt like your brain was "mummified in a cotten ball"- this is exactly why I haven't started taking it yet. I got the prescripton Friday, but I'm too afraid to start taking it. I am a first grade teacher- I can't be a walking zombie! I don't know what to do... Paula
