Hi, I am taking 90 mg of Cymbalta and Vicadin 7.5 every six hours. Also the Rhuematologist put me on a steriod last week and wants me to take it at least for a week. The steroid is something that I am not willing to continue for inflamation. I also was diagnosed with FM/CFS by a Fibro/Rheumatology Clinic and my primary physcian. I am currently seeing a Rhuematologist for a consult for treatment and a diagnosis for my disability. The Rhuematologist has taken me off of MSM, Condroidant and Glucosamin and Ibprophen. Cymbalta has helped some with the pain and depression.

Try Lyrica, It seems to be giving me some relief. Love, gramms

Lyrica gave me some relief but I felt totally stoned. Had difficulty
focusing. Was nervous when it came to driving, etc. I just didn’t feel like myself.
Decided that the side effects out weighed the results and quit taking it.
However, I would have to say to everyone, please give it a try. I’ve heard many
positive outcomes. Just keep in mind that others, besides myself, were not
able to continue taking it. So if your a brain surgeon, try it on a day that
you do not have a surgery scheduled. : )~ Hugs to all…and many prayers,
Toni

Hi everyone. I also tried Lyrica. It did help with pain relief, but I
swelled up like a balloon. I guess a side effect is wieght gain. I had to go
back to Nuerontin. Good luck, always good to try it before you deny it! Sara

Lyrica was one of the best medication to help with my
pain. It is very addicting though so when I am late
taking or forget to take a dose I pay for it. I have
not gained any weight on it and in fact, may have even
lost a few pounds because it has killed my appetite. I
will admit that I did have a small bit of brain fog at
the beginning but like any medication the adjustments
don’t take long if you give them a try. Good luck and
I hope that you find something to help.

Hi everyone,

May I share a resource that has given me recovery and wellness beyond my highest dreams after many years of pain and debilitating fatigue. The Healing Codes. Check out my website about this powerful healing work that I do every day in my own home. I have a joy of living and quality of life that I never could have imagined when I was not long ago on Disability and wondering how I would get through a day…Blessings to all,

I have been on so many things, gabapentin being one of them. I don’t remember it helping too much, but i do know it made me very sleepy. On the other side of the coin, I cannot live without my Lyrica. Not because I am addicted, but because it is the ONLY thing that has ever helped to decrease the pain . The two things that I have learned about the drug, other than the fact that it actually works, are that you really do need to stick to a routeine, and if you take it at bedtime, take it RIGHT before bed, because it can cause sleeplessness otherwise.

Lyrica is VERY addicting but I wouldn’t give it up for
the world. I take it twice a day and it doesn’t seem
to cause a lot of fatigue with me thankfully.
