For me is the combination of Lyrica, Cymbalta, Mobic (new for me), Ambien, and Yaz. Took a lot of playing around with doses, what time of day to take them, etc. before I had the best pain relief I've had yet. It's really weird, most people have to take their cymbalta at night because it can make you sleepy. I have to take mine mid day because any other time, it made me sleep during the day and couldn't sleep at night. Now I am pretty good. Awake during the day and sleep fairly well at night. Good luck to you and my advice, don't "not" try something because you heard someone else had a bad reaction to it. We all are different. And if you try something and it doesn't work, try something else and keep trying until you find what works!!
Fibromyalgia, migraines, arthritis, PCOS, IBS, anxiety, chronic insomnia; Lyrica, ambien, yaz, cymbalta, lidocaine patches, midrin if needed, (fish oil, D3, Co-Q10, multi) PS: I think fibromyalgia is a jerk!
Love, hope, and hugs,
