Has Anyone Tried Naproxen?

Has Anyone Tried Naproxen?

I have tried Naproxen for my pain! It works, but unfortunately I had to stop taking it due to it messing with my Asthma! I had a really bad Fibro Flare once and it took all of it away in minutes! Maybe some of you can try it I don't know! I strongly recommend it though! #FibroWarriorDaily!

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

Yeah but it's not very effictive for me. It caused more problems than has solved, giving me dyspepsia where acid keeps coming up into my mouth, chest pains and heart palpitations.

Savella

Savella

Hi I've just asked my Dr about a drug called Savella that supposedly helps with fibromyalgia only to be told we don't give that drug out. I know it's been passed by the bma but he said it's no different to venlafaxine which I'm already on
Does anybody have any experience with this drug
I'm getting fed up now as I feel like they just don't care. Tramadol, pregabalin, venlafaxin plus others for 10 years and I am told to come off them slowly as I will feel better?

Savella? Any Experiences?

Savella? Any Experiences?

My doctor asked me to do research on the new drugs Savella. She said to find people with fibromyalgia who've taken it and see for myself if it works or not. I am very excited about the thought that something can help better than what I wanted. So please, if you've taken it FOR FIbromyalgia let me know your experience! Thank you!

New Fibro Drug

New Fibro Drug

I went to the pain clinic the other day for my first visit. The doctor asked why I wasn't on a certain type of med that is for fibromyalgia. I'm already on Lyrica and Cymbalta. He said there is a drug that was approved specifically for fibro pain. Does anyone know what he would've been talking about? He's going to be giving a report to my family doctor but I can't see her till two weeks from now. I didn't write it down and of course I forgot what he said.
