TCymbalta And Lyrica

TCymbalta And Lyrica

I've been on cymbalta 60 mg one a day and Lyrica 75mg twice a day for two weeks and half that dose for one week beforehand....shouldn't I be feeling a lot better by now?!?

Has anyone seen the show about tiny houses?
You could have it in cleaned in 10 minutes.
Buy some land and have Fibro community and we could take care of each other. I believe many of us have had some type of mental hardship that started this. Loss of a loved one, battery, mental abuse. The more I am reading, I am believing our brains couldn't take it, so our bodies took over.
I bet more than half of us would agree. I just know I am soooo tired and tired of the drugs yet thankful. Like Tammy , are the drugs in the long run going to really mess us up!
It's raining here. I am in my bed, has anyone know why we go our beds ?
Is it comfort? I don't go to the couch.
I watch the same shows just to keep myself distracted from the pain.

Meds are to help deal with the pain of fibro, there will always be pain, doesn't matter what we take it only is a way to lighten the symptoms, I am gonna get back on the lyrica as at least I could function better than the gabopentin, I also believe that the only med out there that fixes and makes my life better is weed/pot, it is a miracle drug/natural remedy. It is illegal here and I am under contract with my Doc so I can't smoke. If it is legal where you are I would suggest it. Luck and hugs for you all today and always.

It has been shown that mental/emotional hardship is certainly a factor in developing fibro. Wouldn't it be nice to be in a community where it would be easy to look after one another! I do hang out on the couch. I don't like staying in my bedroom even if the only thing I do is to lay on it all day

I think and as my doctor had told me, miracles and medication don't happen overnight. It takes a while for a body to respond favorably whereas it can do just the opposite in a matter of one dose. Give it a good college try, then discuss it with your doctor again and address the situation again. It may be it isn't what s best for you. Everyone responds differently to medication. Take for instance, my honey. If he takes one benadryl, he is down for the count. Me, I have to take four, every four hours and sometimes more if if they aren't enough. With my ripped, at times, one isn't enough. I have found restaurants lie to you.....I have a few food allergies, so when we go out I always have to ask the same questions. They lie. So, unless we are traveling we stick to the same restaurants.
But, on the original subject. What is good for one is not necessarily good for everyone

It doesn't take the pain away completely I feel it takes the edge off only if I could find all natural things that would take the edge off I would use those instead. It helps me make it through work day
