I was a healthy, young 22 yr old, when I had two bouts of glandular fever. In the months following the illnesses I was struck down by excruciating, crippling muscle pain all over my body. I couldn't walk and as a result had to use a wheelchair, the pain was indescribable. At the age of 28 after years of suffering, by shear fluke I was put on an anti- depressant called "amoxapine" the original dose was 50mg as I was so depressed due to the misery of the condition. It became apparent that the pain improved slightly. To cut a long story short, over the years I have increased my dose to a maximum of 300mg, and for the past 4 years I have been completely pain free. I know these are the drugs that are taking the pain away because four years ago they were taken off the English market, and the pain was so intense I was again back in a wheelchair. My pharmacist now orders them from France for me at some considerable cost, so I live in fear that one day I will be without them again. I know amoxapine is made in America, another name for them is "ascend" and I urge you all to speak to your doctors about prescribing you this drug. I am cured and wish you all the best of luck, please, I assure you this could make you well again just like I am.
