For Those Experienced With Cymbalta, What Are Your Thoughts About It?

For Those Experienced With Cymbalta, What Are Your Thoughts About It?

Thanks to the Facebook page "Cymbalta Hurts Worse", more people are able to educate themselves about this drug. Personally, I think it should only be used as a last resort after diet, exercise, safer meds, and treatments have failed. I take that back - I believe it should be thrown out due to the harm it has brought to the lives of so many people. If you are one of the few lucky ones that have had luck with it - that is wonderful! I still like to caution as many people as possible before they… read more

I've had Stellite Ganglion Blocks, Lidocaine Patches, Fentanyl, Methadone, Norco, Morphine, Cymbalta, Lyrica, Cortisone, Valium, Zanaflex, Protonix, Wellbutrin and the one thing that worked but no one will pay for because it's $1100.00 for a 30 day supply is Exalgo.

For Those With Fibromyalgia Or A Disease With Similar Treatment, What Are You Personally Using To Treat Your Illness?

For Those With Fibromyalgia Or A Disease With Similar Treatment, What Are You Personally Using To Treat Your Illness?

I believe this is a question I'm always wanting to ask, since I just began treatment for fibro over a year ago, and I'm still in the process of switching and juggling medications. I'd love to know what's working for people and what isn't, and offer answers to any questions about my personal experience and what has helped my pain and depression. Answers can be anything that has helped you (yoga, sports, routines, having pets, etc.), not limited to medications.

Where Can I Go To Get Hydrocone Prescribed For Me?

Where Can I Go To Get Hydrocone Prescribed For Me?

The doctors that diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia will only give me Gabapentin...which makes me very sleepy. They say they don't care if Hydrocodone helps or not, they wont prescribe it. I am miserable every day. I get lightening pains through out my body all day. I also have a hard time with my legs. I take one Hydrocodone for the whole day and it works. I realized it worked for me when I had some dental work done and was prescribed Hyrocodone. I felt like a million bucks after I took just… read more
