First I wanted to welcome you to the Forum!! This is a great place to share with those that care!! So you'll be up to speed with some of the things that we might refer to you might want to check out the second thread on the Forum called Fibro 101. There's tons of great information on there and some coping tools as well.
OK.. on to your question.. I don't take that med but I'm sure someone that does will come along soon and might be able to help answer it. I just wanted to make a comment on the side effect thing.. isn't it interesting that some of the side effects of many of the medications that we have to take are some things we already deal with, without that med.!?! I've always wondered about that and its always bugged me.
Take care and again, welcome!!!
