Thought I would share with you the medications I take and maybe you would like to share yours. There are so many different meds now, some prescription, others OTC or herbal.
The prescriptions I take are Effexor XR, Neurotin, Flexeril, Trazodone and Lisinopril. The Effexor raised my blood pressure. Dr. said she would rather put me on a blood pressure medication than try to take me off the Effexor.
The OTC items I take for FM are Guaifenesin, Zantac, Lysine and Citrucel.
I also take a multi vitamin, calcium, Evening Primrose, Asprin (81 mg).
They tell me that I'm on a good program. That this is as good as I will feel by taking these meds. I do feel much better than before I started the meds. But . . . I wish I would feel normal again rather than the new normal . . . know what I mean?
