I have fibro. I have had it for several years. My grandmother had it and so does one of her children. There are many opinions on fibro, and I would take them with a grain of salt. Do what you feel is best for you.

I would see a rheumatologist first as they are generally the most knowledable.

I agree that you should not be on zyprexa - it is for bipolar. If you are bipolar, than that is a different issue.

Read as much as you can and find a supportive doctor that will let you try different meds. What works for one does not work for another. This disease is very bizarre, it seems to make our bodies most unique and we just have to find what is best for our own body.

I will tell you what I take, but it doesn't mean any of these meds would work for you. I have tried many others, some throwing down the toilet the first day, other deciding after sometime that nothing was happening, and moving on.

So here goes with my meds:

300 mgs neurontin - 1 am, 1 noon, and 2 at bed
150 mgs effexor - am
7.5/750 vicodin as needed (max 4 per day)
500 mg robaxin as needed (max 3 per day)
10 mg Flexeril as needed (max 3 per day)
1 mg clonazapam at bed for sleep

Please do a lot reading and really listen to your body, think back about the changes in your body, what works and what doesn't. Good luck to you. This disease is a bitch.
