Another plea for advice...I'm horrible at making decisions. My husband laughs at me because I can't even pick out a purse for myself! Anyhow, I've gone to another local dr. who is very concerned about fibromyalgia, and he wants me to start Savella. That means, that I am weaning off the Paxil...which is starting to make me feel like I'm losing my mind. On top of that, I visited my regular dr. prior to that appointment, and he wants me to start taking Wellbutrin instead of Paxil, and continue with Lyrica. I asked him about the Savella, and he is pretty much against it. He said that out of a dozen women, only three were able to take it because of stomach issues. Now...I have gone to two "competing" doctors, both giving me conflicting advice...and I don't know what to do!
I guess I'm asking "what would you do???" Any suggestions will help.
The Paxil withdrawl is getting to me. It's 3:22am, and still no sleep. :( I do know I need to change meds one way or another. As the depression worsens...so does the pain.
Sending out very, very, early morning hugs,
Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, GERD, Irritable Bowel, Mitral Valve Prolapse, Depression
Rx: Lyrica 100mg 2x, Prilosec OTC, Tramadol, Paxil
Even though the journey's long,
and I know the road is hard,
there's One who's gone before me,
He will help me carry on...
