There are some medications that can make pain worse. I can't take any of the arthritis natural therapies as they make the pain really bad, other natural supplements can react with pharmaceutical drugs. Talk to your pharmacist about all that you are taking, they know far more than the doctors about drug interactions

@mereamouse:Right on about that. I am a retired nurse and talking to your pharmacist is smart They are on the ball about meds Also ask about other drugs that are in the same family and less expensive You will be ready to ask your MD about the pharmacist suggestions

Nancy, I suggest you see a psychiatrist. He/she can diagnose Bi-polar, anxiety, depression, etc. He may also refer you to a therapist. He will also take over all your meds so he can be certain there is no interaction. Mine literally saved my life. Good luck.
