Is taking 10 mg vicodan 3 x day.klonopin at nite to sleep. Hydroxyzine for interstitial cystitis. Imitrex (sumatriptan) for migraines too much? I have fibromyalgia
Impossible to say: If the 30 mg of hydrocodone a day is for fibromyalgia, then I would say its too much of the wrong drug. If it is for the hip fracture, and you are within a few weeks of the injury, it may be appropriate. Fibromyalgia is best treated with appropriate exercise and the use of both antidepressants and anticonvulsants. You aren't on anything to prevent migraine. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

The vast majority of people with anxiety do not need pills for it, and even these are best used to keep you functioning during turbulent times in your life. Talking about your life, learning new ways to cope by engaging with life's difficulties, new thought patterns, and possibly intervention in situations may work much better than a rx. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Which medecine is better for fibromyalgia liryca or cymbalta (duloxetine)? I am on cymbalta (duloxetine) 60mg for the last 10 days i didn't notice any difference yet
Both are good.: Both medicines are good. The Cymbalta (duloxetine) not only helps the pain but the depression that is ubiquitous to the condition. They are often used at the same time. You have to wait at least 3-4 weeks to feel any benefits. The effect is very subtle and you will not feel a dramatic difference as you would a pain pill. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
