I am 40 years old but I have fibromyalgia .I am takin Effexor 75 could I have a baby ? Please advise? Would i be worse?.
Several issues: The effexor, as most ssri meds is a category c med meaning no evidence of harm has been found during fetal development, though animal testing may suggest some. Pediatricians like to be aware of rx as these kids can have subdued reactions at birth.I'm not aware of any effect your fibromyalgia would have on the baby & how pregnancy would effect your disease can be addressed by your rheumatologist. ...Read more

Talk to doc.: It is best to speak to the prescribing physician! Lyrica is often begun at 75 mg twice daily for fibromyalgia.

I quit taking Effexor and lyrica 75mg/day each for three months because i felt relief from fibromyalgia. Now i feel pain again.So i take only lyrica 75mg twice a day. Is it okay?
MORE EFFEXOR: If you can tolerate a higher dose than 75mg, this could be helpful. Actually, dosing between 225-300 mg has been shown to be the most helpful for pain. If you cannot tolerate this high dosing of effexor/venlafaxine, consider cymbalta. This works similarly to effexor, and is usually faster/easier to get to target dose (90-120mg for pain). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
