What Medication Are You Taking For Fibromyalgia?

What Medication Are You Taking For Fibromyalgia?

I would like to simply know what medication your currently taking for fibromyalgia and if its working for you. (Maybe side effects you have too.
And if you are doing a Natural treatment & works?
My meds' effectiveness has worn off. I see another Dr tomorrow and would like to maybe suggest a different (I have to watch for certain side effects tho too)
My confusion is extremely bad. So the plainer and simpler you can make it would help. Thank you

I take Savella 100mg twice a day and it has been very helpful, very little side effects. Sometimes I may also need Ibuprofen 800mg as needed.

I used to be on Gabapentin but it made me so tired. Lyrica helped me quite a bit energy wise at first at least for my nerve damage I had seen improvements, I take 150 mg 3 times daily. And Cymbalta 60mg twice daily. My sister also has fibro and she turned me on to a plant that is a natural analgesic. It has been my life saver. Its called Kratom and the strand that helped me the most with energy and pain is called Maeng Da. This plant originates from asia. Alot of people swear by it, it helps with pain and gives a little boost of energy. Comes in tea capsules. I get mine at urbaniceorganics.com

I have been trying the natural route. I was taking a handful of pain meds, anti inflams, anti depressants, sleeping meds all gave me some relieve. I now take gaba to help me sleep, vit d and Base powder as an anti inflam. Still need to find a natural med for pain relief.
