Hi Hurtingbad and welcome to Healing Well. I do hate to hear you are having such pain. But thats one thing we all have in common-pain.
I do not know if you are aware of it or not but the FDA is putting thru a big push on awareness of Acetomenophen in Vicodine & Percocets, any narcotic with Acetomenophen because of the potential of liver damage. They are not going to stop making the drugs but they are bringing it to the public of making changes. Did you ask the dr why he/she stopped the Vicodin, if not you should have. I bet its because of the taking of Tylenol with it.
I see Frances gave you some great input on Lyrica. From what I have been reading it has really helped alot of people with Fibro. But like with any medication it is not a one dose helps everyone drug, you may need your dose increased over time. And like she said it takes some time to see if it will help. If it were me, I would be willing to give Lyrica a chance especially after what I have read about it. We never know if a drug will work unless we give it a try. Its your decision.
I do hope you will hang out with us here on the forum. We have some really nice people on here and we learn so much from each other. Best place I know to come to and get some great pointers on things. Also, Healing Well has a Fibro form so check it out too. Take care and keep us posted.
