    Help! I have had FM for years. Most recently I was on Vioxx. It was effective, but they took it off the market. I then tried Mobic but had a bad reaction. The doctor then tried Etodolac, but that has been ineffective. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    that doesn't work brings you closer to something that will. It sounds like your doc is willing to keep trying new things at least..some just
    give up after the first couple of things. I hope you find what works for you soon!

    Hi .... you can look up the post "Pain Meds" that is currently running on one page 1 - 2 of this board. Many people have shared what they take on that thread.

    I take tramadol, advil and flexeril for my pain.

    Take care,

    any of the muscle relaxers? I take Ultracet and Skelaxton. Both make my life more bareable. I also take Elavil at night fior sleep. Finally getting some restful sleep has mads a world of difference in my pain and fatigue.
    If arthritis is also a problem Celebrex and Methotrexate have worked very well for my mom who has both FMS and arthritis.
    Good luck!
