my fiance heard an advertisement on the radio for a fibromyalgia study for a new medication. they say its fda approved but not on the market yet... i would have to stop taking both my muscle relaxer (flexeril) and my pain meds (vicodin)!!! for at least 10 days before i start the study medication.. they will have me driving to their office once per week and to a rheumy for a one time only visit to confirm that i actually have fibro... i have a brand new job and i dont know if i can handle being off all of my pain meds and muscle relaxers for that long without laying in a lump crying in the bed... also, i have taken supposed 'wonder drugs' before for the fibro.. cymbalta was one and neurontin the other... i had terrible reactions to both of those medications... i ended up losing my last job because of all of the ups and downs with trying new meds and having trouble finding a doc to prescribe my pain meds here in missouri (i am new to the area)...and i missed alot of days... i cannot afford to lose this new job now... nor do i want to really go on another one of these supposed 'wonder drugs' and not be able to take any pain meds!! have any of you participated in a study like this?? do any of you have any more info??
