hello, well done on your sobriety - 3 to 4 years is amazing. Can you go back to the doctor and explain that the medication isn't working for you and you'd like to try an alternative. I know that they can sometimes take a couple of months to function properly but there are various ones so it may be that the one you are using isn't right for you.

Hope your injuries heal soon and you can get back to work.
