Our expert says:
Many antidepressants, including Trepiline, can greatly help in reducing pain, whether or not one is depressed.
The burning sensation is an unusual side-effect and allergic reactions including flushing, itching and rash aere described. I understand the reasoning of your pdoc. I haven't come across that side-effect in connection with Wellbutrin, so try not to anticipate it.
But do discuss all this with your pdoc, who should understand ( that's his skill, hopefully !) As Serotonin is naturally occurring in your body, I can't believe you are allergic to Serotonin as such, but you could have been reacting to the particular drugs designed to influence that. So drugs chemically dissimilar to those associated with the problem, are unlikely to produce the same effect.
Interestingly, the drugs you mention taking for your Blood Pressure and your diabetes, which are very important for your health and should not be stopped abruptly, also have the possibility, rarely, of causing allergies, rash and itching. And in you, they didn't, as you were settled fine on them without experiencing such problems.
Don't feel bad about needing several meds - it's in no way your fault, you just happen to have several common disorders that deserve proper treatment.
