pain management for fibromyalgia

What are the best medications to treat fibromyalgia? I am always hurting somewhere on my body. Especially my back, knees, and hips. I am so exhausted. I wake up every morning feeling like I didn't sleep at all. My doctor gave gabapentin 600mg 3 times a day. They don't work and neither does lyrica. I am just so tired of the pain. I also have trouble walking when my knees, back and hips hurt. Any info you can give me would greatly appreciated. ## There is really no best medication that I can mention, it can vary from person to person. The medications you've mentioned you've mentioned are great examples, they don't work for you, but they do work well for many others that try them. The NIH states the some antidepressants can help, such as Cymbalta or Savella. Have you tr...

neuropathic pain

Has anyone used this drug for neuropatic pain or trigeminal neuralgia? I've been taking neurontin. It helps a little with the pain, but seems to also be causing weight gain. Thanks. ## I have been using neurotin for a few years and have been very pleased with it. it relieves my neuropathy, that is very mild. I tried topamax for a while and had HORRIBLE side effects. Run from it. ## I have a lot of nerve damage in my feet and legs. The doc put me on Neurotin for awhile, but didn't help much. Then he gave me Tramadol and this really helps with the pain. ## Mine was described/diagnosed as nonspecific neuropathic pain. Neurontin,Cymbalta and a few lesser known drugs were tried. At present Topomax and Lyrica are giving the most complete relief for me in years. Side effects are still ...

Oblong Pill White And Yellow With 511 Carved Into It

found this pill in my sons pack pack and I want to know what it is ## I haven't been able to find an exact listing for this, but the closest match I'm seeing is a white elliptical/oval shaped pill marked with 511 on one side and blank on the other (in black ink). There doesn't appear to be any yellow on either side, so I'm assuming that this probably isn't your pill. Hopefully this result can at least narrow down some of your options. Another person here on the site was looking for this same pill and was under the impression that it's probably something that's available over the counter. Have you tried asking your son where he got it from? ## I found this very big white pill while cleaning the garage. ( yeah a guy cleaning the garage) anyway it say: A 511 in ...

What Is The Best Generic Of Lamictal

I've been taking the generic for Lamictal for about five years. Recently I've been feeling different at about the beginning of the year. I use to take the white ones but now I am taking a generic by Taro. What is the best generic for this drug? I never really payed any attention until I started getting this crazy migraines. If anyone has any insights it would be much appreciated. ## There's really no way to say which is the best, since different people can react differently, so it depends on what works for you. The best idea I can give you is to check with your pharmacy and see who manufactured the ones that you used to take and ask if they can order them back in for you. They usually can and will sometimes do so for their regular customers. Does anyone else have any advice ...

Was on dilantin for almost 48 years now vimpat

I had a seizure when 13 years old and put on dilantin. Had 2 more seizures till I was 21 and no more. I am now 61 years old. So it has been 40 years and no seizures. Mayo clinic md said per eeg I can have a seizure if I don't take seizure meds (?). From there he weaned me off dilantin and put me vimpat. I have been fully on vimpat for 1.5 months. My walking is bad - due to my cerebellum, which is bad due to the dilantin. Since on vimpat my unnormal gait has changed with different unnormal attributes. I have recently acquired tinnitus.... I am a buzzing bee. Unsure if it's from the vimpat or other reasons. I am trying to see my gp and neurologist about this - but still waiting for some questions answered. Like to my gp's nurse - should I see my gp 1st or do you want to refer ...

over the counter substitute for gabapentin

I am presently taking gabapentin and if I forget 1 tablet it is awful. I can't sleep and my legs ache and the next morning because of the lack of sleep I can not function. I am on this medicine for back pain and I do believe it helps.. I would like to get off this drug and maybe try something natural but not sure what is in this. I have read several horror stories that have concerned me on the withdrawal from this drug. Just looking for something that may be a natural substitute. Thank you so much.. By the way I am 68 years old and take 600 mg at bedtime.. ## Hello, Eloise! How are you? Unfortunately, there is no over the counter equivalent. Rather than missing tablets, if you have a smart phone, there are quite a few reminder apps available for free that you can set to go off, so t...
