Hi, TyrAnan, and welcome! Yes, quite a few members have sensitivity to medications. I knew I did so I'd never tried the higher-powered meds and tried over the counter things instead and they did work for me. I use ibuprofen with food, Tylenol, magnesium malate, vitamin D3, and a prescription muscle relaxer called Robaxin that has made a significant difference in my pain. The prescription says I can take two tablets four times a day but I only take one tablet twice a day and get great help from it. Plus I don't have side effects from it. The beauty of this medication is it is scored so I could even cut tablets in half!
I also walk daily as a gentle form of exercise and I pace myself when doing things. I get a gentle massage once a month and do Trigger Point Therapy on myself when needed. All of the above have helped me live a full and enjoyable life in spite of this illness.
But, what works for one doesn't necessarily work for another with fibro. It's more a trial and error type thing. You will get ideas by reading posts.
Be sure to read Fibro 101...the first thread on the forum. You will learn a lot about fibro. There are links with good info and even links about the magnesium malate and vitamin D3 and how they work in the body. All,of Fibro 101 is good so do read it.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you better. Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you. Hope to hear more from you soon.
