> Elizabeth- Would you tell me what side effects?

Dry mouth, constipation, urinary hesitancy, pruritis (itching), irregular menstrual cycles, psychomotor agitation (jitters)...a lot of things. Most of them can be dealt with by taking other drugs (bethanechol, Benadryl or ChlorTrimeton, Xanax or Klonopin, propranolol, Metamucil, etc.), but I'd really rather not just keep piling things on.

There's also the fact that if I ever was injured and required opioids for pain relief, I'd probably have some tolerance and would need higher doses than the usual ones. (I should probably get one of those emergency medical bracelets and/or carry a wallet card that says what meds I'm on.) Plus I don't like that it's not available in a pill and has to be taking three times a day; that makes it very inconvenient to use.

IMO, opioids are harder to tolerate than just about any other class of antidepressants.
