Unhappy Medications for Fibromyalgia Pain...

I was wondering about medications for Fibromyalgia pain. I have already tried Lyrica and Neurontin without any success and am still suffering from widespread pain, especially when I get out and walk.

The pain and weakness are all over, but esp. in both hips and legs. I have had x-rays to rule out bursitis. I am 58 yrs old, but I am having to use a cane to walk and may soon need to use a walker. I am very frustrated and am concerned that I will be stuck with this persistent pain.

Are there any other medications that may work for someone with this condition?

Thanks in advance.

Moderators...I'm sorry if I posted this in the wrong place.

I think my mother had to add in cymbalta with her lyrica in order to get relief the lyrica on its own didnt help. I have symptoms but havnt tried any of those things yet. I do use kratom and have my MM card. as well as various supplements such as fibro response does help along with pacing and just taking breaks.

I used to take something for the pain when I was first diagnosed. I believe it was Tramadol. I didn't really like the idea of having to take a pain med so I ended up looking for alternatives. I have gotten mixed reviews about Lyrica so i never tried it myself.

Other medications they use for fibro is Cymbalta & Gabapentin. I was on Cymbalta for several years but it didn't provide much relief. I take a very mild dose of Gabapentin for nerve pain related to arthritis pressing on my spinal cord and find it to relieve some of my pain. If the pain is caused by the fibro or the bleeding on my spinal cord who can say. My rheumatologist told me right from the beginning the med's don't work you gotta get exercise. (ya right my body is screaming in pain!!!!!) It took three years (waiting list) but I managed to get into a warm water aquatics program in my area. The water is always 94 to 96 degrees and the water is easier on your body while giving you resistance. When the water gets moving it's also like a warm water body massage. This is definately a great natural therapy and a way to get exercise.

Ive had fibro since 1991 and am 64 yo,I currently take 800 mg of gabapentin 3x a day and 60mg of cymbalta per day. I DID NOT start off at these dosages. I also take triple strength glucosamine w/condroiton, 2000 IU vitamin D3 (per my dr), calcium with magnesium and occasionally ibuprofen. Unfortunately, you will not find anything that makes the pain go away, at best hopefully some relief. I did just finish a 7 day dosepak of 4mg prednisone which does seem to have helped a bit more. Everybody is different though. What works for one may not work for another. And sometimes it takes a bit to find just the right combination of drugs and dosages that helps. So don't give up. Also, many factors can cause your fibro to feel worse. Such as weather and excess stress.
