I'm in a slightly tricky spot re medication. I was prescribed venlafaxine a few days ago, which is a medication I took a few years ago with no issues, however this time I immediately felt it set off my supposedly dormant stomach ulcer. Like, within half an hour of taking it I was in bloody agony. I went back to the doctor who prescribed me prochlorperazine and pantoprazole to treat the symptoms. Its been two days and I'm still experiencing discomfort. However the issue is ALL antidepressants have this side effect and carry the same risk of causing a peptic ulcer as NSAIDs. I am banned from taking NSAIDs for the rest of my life, and I definitely should not take antidepressants long term as my stomach would end up all kinds of fucked up. And just to make the problem worse I have tried many antidepressants and the majority have failed. After extensive googling I found two kind of injectable AD's, imipramine and amitriptyline, or an MAOI patch, but I don't think thats available in the UK. Has anyone ever had injectable antidepressants before, and are they even prescribed outpatient? Any help gratefully received!
