From this study (12 months ago):
I have been on Tranylcypromine Sulfate for 7 years and take 40g a day. I have seen a new Psychiatrist who says I should at least reduce to 30g and try to get off this medication and have something more up to date. 7 years ago I had a double fusion to my lower spine and it was a success. I have the odd flare up but never needed pain killers and it has been much better for years. I now have had an enormous flare up. My GP has put me on Co codomol and I still feel the pain. My psychiatrist is unsure and does not think its the reduction of the pills as I have not even come off one completely yet but this pain is the question. I dont know what to do.
