So sorry, Lola. I know how scary side effects from these new wonder drugs can be. When I see the commercials on t.v. for depression/anxiety/fibro I shiver. 'Seizures, explosive diarrhea/ heart attack, stroke, seizures, suicidal thoughts'...I know they are probably rare but I just put up with this stupid disease on the least amount of drugs I can and just plod through it. The Lexapro I am on is bad enough.
So glad you were not having a stroke. Feel better.
I haven't heard of savella or lyrica meds, but will look into it.
All meds have bad side effects that may not effect one now, but 10-20yrs later. I didn’t take med’s for a long time, then had to give in b/c of the pain. I don’t like it. The worst med’s are lithium and valporic acid. Diarrhea everyday, confusion, getting lost, headaches etc. I went to ER for the side effects and got off those med’s.
