I know I'm not the only one here who is afraid to try new medications for FMS. I need some help please, to convince me that I really need to take the stuff that is being prescribed for me in order to help me feel better. I've gone for the past 2 years basically with just Tylenol and Advil. The only other thing I take is Klonopin to sleep. I have just been prescribed Flexeril and Tomapax. I am extremely afraid to try them. I really have a phobia about taking any prescription drugs and I'm terrified. I've had bad side effects from anti depressants before and I really don't want to take the Topamax because I don't know how it's going to make me feel and I am afraid the Flexeril will make me feel weird. I'm really scared. I went to the doctor questioning why I was feeling worse and he said the reason is that for past 2 years I've basically gone "untreated" because I have refused to take any medications. I'm afraid of how I will end up if I don't try something soon. Can anyone please help me get past this fear?
