Day two...

No nasty side-effects so far. Two things of note: for some reason my pupils are much more dilated than usual, to the point where bright lights are actually quite uncomfortable, and today I woke up with absolutely no back pain. I've walked round town and shopped, and STILL NO PAIN! This is really quite remarkable. I've no idea whether it's due to the venlafaxine: I know that some antidepressants (TCAs) are reputed to have synergistic interactions with painkillers, but my doctor tried me on amitriptyline before and it helped not at all. It's possible that I'm just having a good pain day, but I honestly can't remember having been this pain-free for years.

Well, maybe it'll last and maybe it won't, but at least I've had one good day.

And speaking of good days, happy birthday wishes to lipfringe and namida!
