    How much pain medicine do you all have to take on a daily basic for the fm and cfs? Also how does it make you feel?
    Does it make you feel more tired? I'm trying to figure out why I feel so bad all the time plus the pain. I know I'm not sleeping much at night and I have to lay down alots during the day but never feel rested. Is the bottom figure on your blood pressure's low? Does it have anything to do with it?

    If I had something that worked well I'd take it.

    Every so often I'll take a ultram but they've never really helped me much. ???
    I get the same relief with OTC tylenol or advil.

    I'm tired all the time.
    With or without meds.
    So I guess I'd take being in a little less pain & Tired,
    Vs. in alot of pain & tired.

    I guess it does depend on how strong the med is?
    like percocette or Lortab 10's would prolly make me sleep half the day~ some meds are'nt as sedating as these tho.
    Trial and error.

    My blood pressure is normal usually, but recently has been elevated. so I'm not sure about having a low number. (sorry)
    Hope this helps some,

    I take oxcotin and it works very well, give it a couple of weeks to get use to it and the tired feeling goes away. Since its only giving you a small amount of medicine at a time because its time released it works well. I couldn't do the stairs before it.

    I take Norco (hydrocodone and acetominophen) 10/325 mg.

    I do not experience drowsiness at all.

    I also take Zanaflex at night before bed...8 mg. It works great for the pain and keeps me asleep.

    I just started taking Soma during the days...2 times a day...so far just minor drowsiness.
