I have had fibro for over 10 years, more like since 1988, anyhow, been on all kinds of meds. Currently take Soma 2 or 3 times a day, along with Xanax .5 mg. twice daily, and when needed, which is most of the time lately, ES Vicodin, and was on Celexa, but when doc run out of samples, gave me Lexapro samples, I don't think this works as good. In fact, I thought I read somewhere that some people thought it made the muscles tighter. Does anyone else know anything of this? I'm also dealing with a death in the family, so that has me messed up too. If anyone knows this or any other info about Lexapro, let me know. I've tried looking up side effects, but so far, nothing that points to this. I am very miserable with my pain, and will probably have to go for muscle work now--altho it's hard to afford. Thanks for any help from anyone.
