Wellbutrin is a great choice for depression, anxiety, ADHD, and chronic pain. You may need as much as 450mg/day for maximum benefit. They market Cymbalta for this, but it is not superior to the other drugs in this class. Lyrica often targets fibromyalgia directly. Don't forget that the pain-depression cycle feeds on itself, so any way you break the cycle will help, e.g., treating the pain will relieve some of the depression and treating the depression will help the pain, as you discovered from your own experience.
