I use ibuprofen (Motrin) with food. I buy the generic since the active ingredient is the same and it is less expensive. The ibuprofen helps me the most. When I'm in a bad flare, I also use extra strength Tylenol (the generic form also.) You can safely take up to 2,400 mg of ibuprofen and 4,000 mg of Tylenol a day. When I do take ibuprofen, I take 600 mg at a time. Anything less doesn't help the pain for me.
Read the Fibro 101 thread that I suggested. There is information about malic acid/magnesium supplements that have helped many with pain and fatigue. I take these also.
Hope this helps. This is what I do to control my pain, along with moving, stretching and mild exercise (walking). I do not take narcotics.
