Medications That Help Me As A Fibromyalgia Sufferer - John's Feedback

I have found the combination of Lycria and Metformin help to reduce my Fibromyalgia pain. They also help to lessen my anxiety, depression and improve my energy levels.

I have gone from sleeping 16 hrs a day to 8-10 maximum. And I have energy to do things I would have found very difficult before starting these two medications.

But my advice is to be careful! These meds have the possibility for serious side effects so check with you doctor. And READ the info that comes with the medications.

Good Luck to you all.

Fibromyalgia Treatment
by: Alex

At my local health food shop, I was recommended to try "Devil's Claw" and almost immediately,
had relief from the various painful spots all over the body. After a month of taking this treatment, some have actually disappeared and the others are now not so noticeable. This has helped me to sleep much better.

I have also been on Lyrica and found that I gained 20 pounds and counting as a result. This put great stress on my already problematic knees and heart. And this in turn made it harder to exercise. Catch 22 again.

I have since gone off this drug. But I did find that it was beneficial as far as reducing the pain. I was taking 2 per day. At first I thought it was a miracle drug and was ecstatic. Then the pounds started to pack on despite my increased exercise time.

This drug may not react this way on everyone. Unfortunately, I was one of the unlucky ones.
