    Laila, I don’t know the name. You can probably find it by Googling it. You should also talk with your pain medicine doctor to ask about levels of treatment leading up to that, that you could do in the US. Good luck!

    Hi Jon,
    Here are some suggestions for finding a good person in your area:
    1. Call the academic health centers near where you live and ask for their pain department. You could also call the psychiatry departments at academic health centers and ask if anyone specializes in chronic pain. I suggest academic services, rather than just any hospital, as these are where people do research and train students, and may be more likely to be up-do-date on treatment options.
    2. Check the “find a provider” links on some of the national pain organization websites (some of these are linked on my website) and see who’s in your area. Many of these websites will let you enter your city, what type of provider you want, etc.
    3. Ask your medical pain management doctor, such as a neurologist, or your primary care doctor, about a psychiatry referral. Hopefully this person has a colleague he or she refers to.
    I hope that’s helpful.

    I have read that SNRI meds have many, many harsh, huge side-effects, especially weight gain. You did not mention that in the article. Isn’t that a valid concern?

    It can be a concern for some of the medications, but not all of them.
