Hello everyone! New to this board, but not to ivillage. I am wondering what meds everyone is taking for FM and what works the best for you? I am currently taking 2700 mg of Gabapentin a day and just starting on Savella. I work at Walmart as a bakery department manager and my job is VERY physical. I take 2 Hydrocodone 10/325 every night that I work. This helps me tremendously and I am hoping that the Savella will help me actually be able to stop taking the hydro as I would love to have my life back in the evenings! I was just diagnosed, but I suspect that I have had FM for about 12 years or so.
I would love to hear any and all stories you guys and gals can tell me to help me deal with this!
A little bit of background info on me, I have been a huge fan of ivillage for about 14 years and used to host several boards in the pet area. The one I was on the longest was Pet Homepages. I loved it, but due to not enough time, I had to quit hosting. I know that the people here are the bestest and hope to make a few new friends on this board! Thanks in advance for reading this and hopefully responding!
