Good luck with finding the right med combo. My rheumy is forever changing mine.
I wonder how much our metabolism is changed everytime we switch to a new med.
My weight sure loves to yo-yo.
My body couldn't handle the cymbalta, so I am on savella 50mg 2x daily. I have cut back on
my muscle relaxant (Flexeril) since I've started the savella. I am also on Methotrexate
which is a immunosuppresant I take for autoimmune issues.
I was on Vicodin for six months. It sounds crazy but I feel better since I stopped it.
I too wonder about the long term side effects of all the medication, but really what are
our options. I do relaxation therapy daily and excercise when I can.
Good luck to you. Hope your doctor is helpful !!!
