For instance if I bend down with my head facing downwards and raise back up it pains a lot for a minute or two then slightly easier to bear with.

Is the replacement of the TCA by the SNRI justified? To answer that question, comparisons regarding effectiveness and safety must be made.
Both the old and the new antidepressants seem to be effective at treating chronic pain. Even some of the most difficult to treat pains res...
