Very new to blogging so bear with me, modern technology and all things associated with it left me behind many years ago!
I've heard about anti-depressants being used in the treatment of Raynaud's once or twice but have never seen much written about it until reading the current therapies section in a recent edition of 'Hot News'. My GP has suggested a course of anti-depressants to me at various points in my life (as a treatment for depression rather than Raynaud's!) but I've always avoided going down that route.
I'm now beginning to think that if there's a possibility that I can 'kill two birds with one stone' with a medication that will help me feel a bit brighter when I'm going through a low spell, and also lessen the severity of my Raynaud's attacks, it may be an avenue worth exploring.
I'd be really interested to hear experiences from anyone who is using, or has used, an anti-depressant for the treatment of Raynaud's, whether it helped, any side affects, etc...
