    Hello, I have been on Zoloft for years, but am thinking about switching to something that might also help with pain... like Celexa? Has anyone been on a specific antidepressant and noticed that their pain levels improved?

    Duloxetine is sometimes used for fibromyalgia and diabetic peripheral neuropathy, its a dual reuptake inhibitor which in my experience makes it a bit harder to discontinue from.
    Im not on it for pain and don't notice any pain killing effects over single reuptake inhibitors like Zoloft
    Celexa is a fairly neutral antidepressant neither sedating or stimulating and a lot seem to like it but you're milage may vary.

    My pain improved a lot with Duloxetine, even in a small dose like 30 mg.

    I was going to mention Cymbalta as well.
