My insurance just quite paying for a muscle relaxant. I don't take a high amount, so the cost isn't prohibitive. BUT I want to consider options. Any suggestions on muscle relaxants that are effective. I also want to review using Lyrica and Cymbalta simultaneously. Any one taking both. What is the positive effect?
I take cymbalta with lyrica and so far so good. It changed my life in regards to the burning and sharp pains i was getting in my ribs. Its far from a cure, but I was unable to move for hours at a time on a daily basis. The combo of lyrica and cymbalta changed that.
For me I became allergic to them both. Now I am on Methocarbamol 750 Mg 2 times a day and Diclofenac 750 Mg 2 times as day as well also Etodolac 400 Mg 2 tabs daily and I am also taken Belbuca for pain and also do Iv therapy with vit and minerals.
I also have to take Imtrex injections for migraines any where from 2 to 3 times weekly
Hope this helps you

Good Morning DrT, I think I mentioned that I couldn’t take Lyrica and Cymbalta. I had a bad reaction to both. My PC put me on Pamelor, it’s a antidepressant that also works with nerve pain. It’s a medication that should be taken at bed time. It helps you sleep. I also take Zanaflex for muscle relaxer, I’m on Medicare and it’s covered pretty well. The Zanaflex is under $10.00. My doctor has also said to have your pharmacy run it through without insurance or check GoodRX, it may be cheaper that way. I hope you are able to find something that works.
I hope it helps. I did research the pharmacy the best I could... And I personally know others who use that pharmacy. No one has been disappointed. If you have any other questions, I'll do my best to answer. I did talk to my doctor about it. And he said he knew people where having to seek pharmacies in other countries. Just to do your research first. But like I said earlier, this pharmacy was recommend by a doctor. One my mother sees. So I was pretty confident. Again, Good luck!
I can't believe they have tramadol listed as an opioid. It works differently than other opioids and pain medications. What are they thinking? So sorry for your troubles! You should look into Canadianpharmacy.com. I had to go that route for some medication that was $500, AFTER insurance. It's for my asthma so its a "life saving drug", they know they've got you and you have to buy it. I could not afford that but needed it. A doctor recommended a family member try this web site. I got a 3 month supply for $150. And that's without using my insurance. The only problem is that new prescriptions it takes at least 15 days to receive. It does come in the same packaging but its in a different language. Same medication. I have others I want to switch now.
