I started with gabapentin and then my doctor put me on Gralise-- which is time released gabapentin. I felt better.
At one time the insurance company didn't want to pay so I went back on gabapentin.I could tell the difference. My doctor put me back on Gralise and I noticed a huge difference.
No side affects at all for me. I have been on it for probably 7 years now.
Fibromyalgia is such a tricky malady. There actually have been no drugs,diet or supplements that have been proven effective if you actually check the research--- but there is always something that works for someone! That's the frustration.
So try. in the end you have to way more quality of life against your drug fear. After a while it became very clear for me.
I take 1800 milligrams daily. You only take it once a day after your evening meal.
I also take cymbalta,zanaflex and Percocet.
Hoping for the best for you-- one moment at a time.
