I like to wait atleast a year or two after a new drug comes out because thats when you really hear about
all the "bad" side effects, or possibly any deadly effects that can happen, cause it seems to happen more when it's on the market then when it's in the trial phase. Like with that one painkiller, cant remember the name, I beleive it was slow release diladid, and they found out that people where dying when it was mixed with alchol, and they very fast pulled it off the shelf.
But if I hear great things about
it, then maybe I will ask, but I will wait and let other's be the test rats. And I havent heard much about
what meds it can and cannot be mixed with. Kinda like with Cymbalta your not suppose to mix it with triptan type meds, but after asking several doctors, they agreed since my migraines are now under control, and I barely take my Imitrex, it should be fine. And so far so good, but pain wise I am noticing I'm a bit better, But I am disappointed that it isnt helping with my anxiety/deression a much as I thought it would.
So I will wait a while, then ask around again, and maybe try it to see if it helps with the depression part also. But the only problem I will face is that it's very brand new, so I'm sure it'll cost a leg and arm, maybe even my first born. Cause I'm on state insurance since I'm on SSI, and they dont like to pay for any drug unless it's over 50 years old, or so it seems lol. But I will be excited to hear what you guys have to say about
it, since I dont know many people with fibro who want releif, so i look to you guys for information on new things to ask my doctor about
. So good luck to all who try it!!
