HELP! Best med to treat headachemuscle pain?

Posted by jay on June 17, 2002, at 1:47:54

Hey folks:

Well, after six years on Effexor...I am now going into two weeks Effexor free time. The reason I quit was because of, you got it, side effects. I am not a drug basher, but this med and I didn't get along. I don't know why I stuck with it. One thing I really noticed is it messed up my blood sugar/insulin reactions. My testing was fine, but I would in a matter of a few minutes, become famished, trembling and shaking for food. Never mind the weight gain...the total flattening of emotions...numbness..grouchy miserableness..etc.(And yes I tried most 'augmentations' know to humans.)

So, I have been using a few meds to cope with my 'withdrawl'. One being Gravol (Drammamine in the U.S.) for nausea; precribed antibiotics to clear up an infection I got two days after I stopped Effexor; and for pain (headaches, muscle aches), only access to Tylenol # 1, Ibuprofen, and Aspirin. I also take a PRN benzo, one called bromazepam. Man, I feel really good about this...not 'manic' good...but like after years I am living my life again.

Soooo..this brings me to my question. (Sorry for the ramble..heh.) Tension headaches...what do people find the best med that works for this? And how about getting them prescribed? I was looking at Fioricet; Oxycodone; and most strong narcotic pain killers for PRN use. How about muscle relaxers? What are the most widely effective (ie help whole body), powerful muscle relaxers?

Any help GREATLY..greatly appreciated. Thanx so much...
