Has anyone taken Paxil and Oxycontin?
It's been a while since I last posted. I had an ACDF in May and in PT now for some pain and muscle tension between shoulder blades. I'm making slow progress and the Dr. tells me I need to wait a year to fully evaluate the results.
I've been on several pain meds and muscle relaxers. Presently, Robaxin, Arthrotec, Lortab 5/500 (about 2-3 a day as needed).
I tried Kadian 20 mg for about a month but it seemed to worsen a feeling of depression. Mr Dr. just switched me to Oxycontin ER 10 mg twice a day. It doesn't seem to give me the depressed feelings like Kadian, but the long term pain is still taking a toll on my emotions.
I took paxil years ago for mild OCD and it worked. I tried it about 6 mos. ago while taking Tramadol and experienced what appeared to be Seratonin Syndrome (even the Dr. and Pharm. didn't know about the syndrome).
I'd like to start the Paxil again, but won't without seeing the Dr. Has anyone here taken Paxil or another SSRI with a low dose of Oxycontin? I'm a little scared to try it again, but was pleased with Paxil's effectiveness in the past.
