Hi everyone, it is good to be able to talk with people who are in the same boat as myself, although I would much rather not be in it lol. My frustration lies with my doctors views on Fibro. I have been on Fentanyl for 15 years for osteoarthritis in my spine. I was diagnosed with Fibro some 8 years ago on top of Osteoarthritis. Some docs say I should not be in pain with the amount of Fentanyl I am on but it does nothing at all for fibro. I was prescribed Fluoxetine which began to work after 4 weeks but then I started suffering terrible panic attacks so I stopped taking them and it took 5 weeks to get out of my system. The I was put on Neproxin but this flared up my stomache even with omaprezole! Ametryptiline did nothing for me apart from make me sweat profusely day and night. Currently I am on no medication for Fibro just Fentanyl for Osteo. I would appreciate your input as to which drugs give you relief without many side effects
