  • This is another dangerous drug if you have a reaction to codine, morphine, lyrica, gabapentin, norspan, endone, OxyContin, pristiq, depression tablets you will have major reaction to these. I was on these for a week and very scary reactions.

  • If this medication is so great, then why haven’t I read or heard about it in any of my fibromyalgia groups. Besides I can’t take it anyway. Side effects, don’t like the way seritonins, AB inhibitors, seizure meds make me feel, like a zombie. Let’s not for get depicote, slobbering out the mouth, that’s some nasty pills.

  • I won’t put that in my body either. The stigma of being on antidepressants leads to poor treatment in the ER. All pain you have is in your head. I’m a chronic pain patient wit fibromyalgia lupus RA and crps. I had a botched surgery. The minute they saw I was on an antidepressant and Lyrica I was not believed. I was left in agony for 5.5 months lost 90 pounds. All they offered me were warm compresses for the severe pain social workers and a psych consult. I had to travel out of town. Finally a surgeon took me seriously and found rotting organs. Oh yes. It took 3 surgeons to remove those organs. Since then I discontinued the antidepressants and Lyrica. I will not put that in my body ever again. This is the second time I’m ill treated by the medical system because o was on those drugs. Now I don’t care to ever seek medical treatment again. Btw I won my appeal and am waiting for the judgement. I was diagnostically overshadowed based on a mental health bias.
