Today i had the worst flare ever, the whole works, pain everywhere, arms and legs heavy, tired and sleepy and what's worst i had to go shopping with my daughter so u can imagine how that was.
I have just started Lyrica 6days ago along with muscle relaxants, antidepressants and calibrex. Can a flare that bad happen right after i started the medication ?
I absolutely have had flares from starting new meds. Since you started so many at once you won't even be able to tell which one(s) it may be. Drug sensitivities are pretty common with Fibromyalgia. I have had quite a lot of drugs (and even some supplements) make me feel worse. Why did your doctor start you on so many different meds all at the same time? How will you even be able to tell if any of them are helping, which one(s) it is? And how will you be able to tell if you're getting any side effects, which drug it is from? I would discuss this with your doctor. Although if you have the type of doctor that puts you on 4 new drugs at once you might not have the type who listens/understands when you say you believe it may have triggered a flare. Some doctors just like to say you need to keep taking them longer or that you need more
meds. Best of luck to you <3
