I'm new here, and I've noticed that many people sign with and often talk about
meds. I have had about
3-5 doctors which keep prescribing me the same group of meds that don't really seem to help. I bet the "oh so wonderful" and "struggling for money" prescript
ion medication companies visit these doctors all the time, bearing many wonderful gifts. I'm so sick of it!!! I have asked many times to switch things up, but they keep saying that these particular are the "best" for treating FMS and RA (I'm 23 BTW). Even I know that people react differently to medication. Any how, here is a list of meds I've been on (prescribed at different times during last 5 years). The ones with the dosage are my current meds.
*tramdol (50mg 3xs a day), vicoden, percocet (one half 1-3 time a day, 1-7 days a week, it really depends) , lorotab
*Flexeril (5-10mg at night and/or as needed), soma, skylaxin, valium
*Lyrica (150mg 3x a day) , Topamax , Cymbalta (60mg in mornings), Lexapro
*Ambein, Lunesta, Trazodone (150mg at night)
*Hydroxychlorquine, 800mg ibprophine
Sorry if spelling is off. I'm too tired and lazy to look it up. I really want to revamp my med regimen, because of my unrelenting fatigue. I'm soo exhausted. I'm a college student and work full time in order to keep my health insurance. Fibro fog is really holding me back. My grades are slipping and keep messing up at work. Ive asked for a type of stimulant to help my concentration, but they just lowered my meds. It defiantly has made things worst.
So, what meds have worked for you,and-or what are you currently taking???
Sorry so long winded, I have no one else to talk to who understands he frustration of FMS, CFS, RA, etc.
Thanks and wish everyone a pain free day.
