I am on Effexor, but a dosage of 150 mg. It hasn't done too much to help my pain, but has helped me feel better about pain, haha. It made me so so so nauseous when I first went on it, but that has since gone away. If you can stick it out, it will be gone in a week. Hopefully this is helpful. I can awnser an more questions you have about it as well.

Hi, Short~Mamad and welcome!  I do not take those medications but I they sound familiar so there are probably some members taking them.  I'm sure they will come along shortly and post.
 
I use ibuprofen (with food) and Tylenol for pain and also malic acid/magnesium supplements for pain and fatigue.  Info about these is in the Fibro 101 thread.
 
Mama, also please do not use all capital letters.  It is very difficult to read and it also is considered yelling!  LOL  I just found that out myself a couple of years ago.  Thanks!
