Re: Amphetamine and Pain: pain reception dysfunction and psychopathology

I am on opioids and gabapentin for chronic pain which was the result of a car accident in 2005.
I've restarted Dexedrine about 6 months ago for my ADHD and have experienced the welcome "side-effect" of increased pain relief. So I have been able to halve my daily Morphine intake. I am working with my GP to lower my dosage on a monthly basis with the goal of eventually ceasing the pain meds.
Practical pain management has articles supporting both the stand-alone or concurrent with opioid use of stimulants for chronic pain.
