Have you noticed fewer flares or feel that you have to take fewer additional meds?

Wish I had some thing positive to say; caused palpitations for me, which I already take medicine for so it's not a comfortable feeling.😟

Jaycee69, I take Prozac. It has worked well for me and I have been on it for 17 years with no problem. It does not work well for pain, though. Fortunately, Robaxin is helping with that. I have an opiod but I try not to take that every day.

I was put on Cymbalta, but I had very severe side affects from it. I was taken back off of it by my doctor. I cannot take it or Savella or Lyrica. I cannot take any medications like these as I ended up in the hospital and told never to take these type of medications which they told me are in a class called SRI medications. They put it on my permanent chart in bright red on the front of the chart along with the rest of the medications I cannot take morphine. Everyone should update your medicine and any medicines you cannot take. My husband and I each have updated folders that we can give to the ambulance or to hospital personel if we have an emergency. I have the information in my computer and update if there are any changes.
