Lately, the new medications on the block called the serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs ) are grabbing the attention of physicians and patients around the world, leaving the TCAs nearly a forgotten memory. 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...
