PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT MEDICATIONS HELP YOU WITH FIBROMYALGIA.
Have you ever tried Neurontin (Gabapentin) generic name.
Since I"ve been on it, I have been able to cut back on pain pills.
I've been on it for over month,,but it took at least 3 weeks to really notice how it helped.
I"m only on 300 mgs ,,, take 100 mgs 3xday. I may be asking my dr. if we can up it ,with hopes
of even less pain pill.
Another med I"ve tried, is an anti -depressant,called Tofranil,,, its an old one,,,but that really helped with the pain too,,,but, I had to quit it as I could not sleep with taking it,,but we all are very different, so maybe its worth a try for you.
Seems the drs would rather give patients anti -depressants for fibro pain than,, pain pills.
Good Luck,,, achyten
I take lortab-vitd3-grapeseed extract-mucinex and other supps.also clonezpam
It is so indiviual on what helps who. vitd3 really helped with brain fog,depression. b-12 is another one.
