Lyrica.

Lyrica.

My Neurologist is now suggesting that I try Lyrica.
I have been on Neurontin for yrs.
It helps but doesn't always do the job.
I am curious to know other people's experiences with it.
I also just went to the pain Doc & he wants me to see a therapist who prob will want to suggest I take an antidepressant.
I just got off Klonapin & am nervous about what to do next.

I also have a long list of reactions to medications, it might be part of the Fibro, never thought about that. Noise and light affect me too.

My Dr. prescibed Gabapentin (genetic for Neurontin). Been on it for two weeks, but I don't feel any difference. Does anyone relate?

It is a supplement for the hydrocodone that I already take.

what's the number 1 thing you wish you knew when you where first diagnosed

what's the number 1 thing you wish you knew when you where first diagnosed

I've dealt with enormous amount of pain for yrs due to a skin disease I have, and couldn't get my Dr's to understand this pain is different. For 5ish yrs I've tried to find out what was wrong with me, why my 8 yr old can hug me and it hurts so bad I nearly cry, I was pretty sure it was fibromyalgia. But it wasn't until today I got my diagnosis.
So plz help me out and tell me what the number 1 thing is you wish you knew or had been told… read more

Meds, meds and more meds

Meds, meds and more meds

Okay fellow fibro friends, my questions is what types of drug combinations do you take for your fibro? Pros/cons? just went off cymbalta and currently taken only neurontin at night, and occasional as needed ultram. Well I can feel my muscle as tight and no matter what I do they aren't relaxing. Have Xanax as needed for anxiety so after the pain kept getting worse I took one and it kinda helped. But isny something I want to do forever. So any suggestions I would be grateful

What is everyone's opinion on being taken to HR at work due to my possible side effects of Gabapentin?

What is everyone's opinion on being taken to HR at work due to my possible side effects of Gabapentin?

I'm not sure how to feel about this. About a week or two ago I wrote on my update here on MyFibroTeam, that I was sent home from work due to extreme dizziness, nausea, light, sound sensitivity and being off balance. It was awful. I returned to work 2 days later still feeling off balance and dizzy but not like the last two days. I saw my Rheumatologist the next week and she lowered my meds to see if it was the… read more
