Wellbutrin: Helping Or Hurting Sciatic Nerve Pain & Arthritis?

Webkang,

You haven't told us whether you started having these problems after you started taking the WB or if you had this pain before you started. I would be more concerned if the pain started after you started taking it. Just yesterday I started feeling a pain in my low back; I have been taking WB for 4 wks and I'm starting to feel better, mood wise. I attributed this minor soreness when I lean over to the fact that I have not been practicing my yoga regularly, when I do yoga faithfully, my back feels great. So that is what I'm going to try to see if it relieves my symptoms.

Well, I think that's great that your pain has lessened, but I have no idea if the WB is the factor. My low back pain seemed to have resolved so it may have been a minor strain. It would be interesting to hear if anyone else with a chronic pain condition has had any benefit from WB.

Hi there, it is probably anti depressants in general. My constant lower back pain dispersed when I went onto AD's years ago. Also had a family member that always suffered and inexplicable pain in her neck for years until she went onto AD's when at suddenly also disappeared.

I can also tell you that I was constantly sick with the flu, colds and sinus infections for years and years until of course I went onto an AD.

My P Doc explained to me that your body and brain cells re generates much slower when you are in depression leaving you much more vulnerable for inflamation of joints and muscle and viruses etc. Also when you are out of a depression your pain threshold increases significantly

Ive also read articles on this site that supports it. More fascinating things is that there are areas in you brain that physically enlarge when you come out of a depression. The more I read about depression and ADs the more I am certain that I will never ever come off them again! There are also studies pointing in the direction that it might even protect your brain in a stroke.

Cheers here is to a pain free life on anti depressants!!
