Mental Health: How Are You Feeling About The Focus On Long Covid?
A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

Any Thoughts About My Depression Situation?
A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have been on Lexapro for my depression for 7 years and feel like it is not working as well anymore. I was on Paxil before and liked that better but my psychiatrist seems to prefer Lexapro.

A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

I am not sure that paxil is helping me as I do have emotional down days -- it seems that my physical pain and my emotional pain go together.

Has Anyone Tried Savella For Fibro?
A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

I couldn't handle Lyrica, Cymbalta, Paxil and Xanax. I have a new doctor and she wants me to try Savella. I'm ready to give up on western practices.
