Does anyone take Acroxia / Etorivoxib for fibromyalgia? I saw a rheumatologist yesterday who prescribed this but I’m scared to take it because I find the possible effects worrying!
Has anything else worked for your pain?
I’m currently on a cocktail of things that do help a bit, but recently my pains have been worse again especially in the cold. Annoyingly I have tried gabapentin and Amitriptyline in the past which have not been good for me
might be worth asking to try pregabalin. It's similar to gabapentin (same drug family) but I found it helped where gabapentin did nothing for me.
I've just started taking Lyrica and it's made a big difference compared to gabapentin, which I was on for many years.
ooh, I’ve read a lot about this on forums but it’s never been mentioned to me before in the UK
the generic name is pregabalin. In the US it falls in the class 3-5 of controlled substances, so a picture ID is required to pick it up and it's limited to how early you can get it filled. But it's made a huge difference for me and not just my fibro but also my arthritis pain
I previously tried pregablin it suited me however caused me weight gain and this made me depressed so I changed back to gabapentin.
Thing is with medications everyone reacts differently it may suit you and you'll be fine. If not stop taking it and go back to your doctor.
I've never heard of it.
I took that for years and it helped me! However, it can make stomach issues worse, and it's not a good medication for long term use x
