Not really: Narcotics do not work well for fibromyalgia. Try a yoga class.

See PCP first.: The Percocet is an opiate and the cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant and they are often used together to treat pain. The problem is that both are very addicting if taken on a long term basis so since fibromyalgia is a chronic problem and an alternative treatment that would be better is an antidepressant Cymbalta or savella (milnacipran) and Lyrica or neurontin.See pcp for advice.

Acetominaphen motrin: This is sometimes prescribed. I do not like the tylenol (acetaminophen) in the Percocet and the Ibuprofen in combination for long.
