    After having my neurotransmitters screwed with (or, as I call it, my kill, kill, kill reactions) via, Welbutrin, Chantix, and Lyrica, I decided no more Beta testing on me by Big Pharma! I stick with the old tried and true pain, muscle, and anxiety meds plus Cymbalta (I deal quite well with this particular SNRI) and Ambien. I came to realize that rather then have actual effective - read costly - trials, these guys jerry-rig just enough for for the FDA then send it out to us for the Real testing. Hey, what's a few -- or not so few - suicides, homicides, broken relationships, etc.?

    Usually pretty chilled about things but this is my hot button. I went nuts on these bigger, better, faster poisons. And so did just about all my fibro friends and family. My policy now is to wait at least 7 years and study hard before trying anything "new." I've also reported my reactions to the FDA (website offers this option). They do at least publish their findings.

    Anyway, thanks for the info, Elliespad! With you all the way.
