he offered me about a hundred options.  many won't work ... as I have had bad experiences with amitryptiline (sp!?), topomax, neurontin, etc.  he suggested Cymbalta ... since I clearly need something that works on depression too.  i'm supposed to start it tomorrow.  wow, that's pricey stuff, huh?!?!  thank goodness I finally have insurance!!!
my aunt takes cymbalta for depression and pain associated with diabetes, and she said that she can not imagine life without it.  dr said i don't need blood tests to monitor it like i would with lyrica, and that lots of people have great results from it.  i'm supposed to check back in in a month.
let's hope it works!

Hi Do-over,
I am glad that you are able to try something for your fibromyalgia.  I hope that the cymbalta works for you.  I know that it does for some. 
Let us know how it goes.  Keep us posted. 
Best wishes to you.
Hugs, Karen
