    Everyone has different pain levels and different levels of pain tolerance therefor require different medications.

    I recently started taking Darvocet N-100 -- this is the first pain medication I have ever been prescribed for FMS and it does help me.

    I have taken Vicodin daily for chronic Migraines several years ago -- for over two years and had no problem quiting in one day with no adverse reaction.

    I was in remission from FMS at that time. I was diagnosed with FMS in 1998.

    My daily Rx and supplements include:

    Estradiol -- 2 mg q.d.

    Topamax -- 50 mg b.i.d.

    Darvocet N100 -- p.r.n. 1-2 q. 4-6h. (if working I take 1 p.r.n. when not working I will take 2 p.r.n. if pain requires)

    Lexapro -- 10 mg q.d.

    Levoxyl -- 50 mcg q.d.

    Fish Oil -- 1000 mg t.i.d.

    Magnesium - 500 mg q.d.

    Daily multivitamin -- 1 q.d.

    Selenium -- 400 mg q.d.

    Vitamin C -- 250 mg q.d.

    B-12 injection -- 1 cc every three weeks p.r.n.
    (if I am in a flare I will do three daily injections in a row which seems to help)

    I had a hysterectomy when I was 37-years-old find that HRT really helps me but everyone is different.

    I definitely take more medications than I would like but these seem to work pretty well for me at the moment.

    I hope everything works out for you best of luck with doctor appointments and court.

    I go to Chat every now and again but I haven't been there in quite a while. It is usually pretty fun -- sorry no one was there when you were I hope you have better luck next time -- it used to stay pretty busy.

    Take care,

    Karen :)

    Thank you for all your response's and med's included.
    It's a personal thing I know but feel safe discussing with friends here,,

    Most all meds are some what the same but different catagorym, and what works for some may not work for others,,

    I really dont like on ER visits,, friends,, family explaining meds, doses, strength, why need it., etc,,

    they look at you (ME) like im a presc.. drug abuser.. NO Pain Manag,, surgeon all prescribed for me and if didnt have some or most probably ___seizure coma death ____ sounds auful but in EMS field seen a dozen times NOT good,, tried tapering off certain meds and couldnt even touch my skin... NOT GOOD.. so back on em i went..ha ha

    who goes to chat rooms/which ones sound like it'd be fun/interesting? Let me know/ if can Please,

    GOOD LUCK GETTEN OUT WITHOUT ANXIETY!!!! I DO UNDERSTAND

    Most of us do,,,,, ONE day, hour at a time, always here to talk
