my new meds, geodon and lamictal for bipolar. I fell and broke my tailbone back in June and now have arthritis in it! My AS has been flaring, moods all over the place. I'm just flat out broken. Does anyone have similar problems and any suggestions about what drugs to talk to him about?

'Chelle, good luck. I don't know enough about your particular issues to recommend medication to discuss. Has there been any thought that some of your issues are actually caused by the medication for other issues?  Maybe a reassessment of all your meds might be in order now that you are having such problematic issues with everything.

Take care....

hey seechell,

wow, that's a lot on the plate. i can only say that for AS, Enbrel/Humira/diazepam were the only things that actually helped improve it.  the valium broke the bad AS spasms, Enbrel & Humira actually improved it and lessened the flare ups.

perhaps maybe ask about those meds?

best wishes, hang in there.

Thanks both of you. Erin, I'm printing this so that I can ask him about them. You always have great advise. That must be why you make such a good moderator. Thanks again.
