Please give suggestions on what to try. I am allergic to gabapentin and tizanadine... thank you fibro warriers!
I've been on meds for fibromyalgia turn over 30 years. Currently I take cymbalta, tizanidine, and gabapentin. I know it's really frustrating, but you can talk to your doctor how about different dosages and different alternatives. I have found that the muscle relaxers stop working after a while and they need to be changed. Before I was on cymbalta, I had been on various other antidepressants over the years. Cymbalta has helped me now for quite a while.I believe it's one of the only medications that helps with depression, insomnia and pain. I have found that it takes quite a while the changeover to different antidepressants. I hope that you and your doctor find what's right for you as fast as possible.
try P.E.A. Palmitoylethanol amide - a suppliment that is the same compound as part of nerves that help us deal with pain, being given to MS patients here in Aust. what happens when you take Gababpentin ?
It is only a short time drug. The dr told me that this is to be expected. So i would go off it for a while.
I am now on pain patches, they're not morphine so I'm not drowsey from them. Best thing i ever did.
I also found after time I had to change or up dosages. I can't take pain management meds. Side effects are worse than the pain.
