Hi, I have been diagnosed with fibro. I am probably worrying over nothing, I often do
I have some anxieties over my meds that I have been prescribed and have been on for about 1 1/2 months.
I am on Effexor and Wellbutrin. They say that depression hurts and it makes fibro pain much worse, well I would have to agree because not only am I feeling better emotionally, (anxiety and depression greatly improved) but my pain is a lot less. Most of the time anyway. Am hurting quite a bit tonight, but that is beside the point.
I also take Lorazepam (not sure of spelling) at night to help me sleep. The sleep is not going so well, most night/mornings I do not get to sleep until well after 3am.
Now to the worry part. I am scared to death of the things I have read about Effexor and withdrawl when it is time to stop taking it. It almost makes me want to quit taking it now so I don't have quite such a hard time. The second concern is the Loranzepam, I seriously don't want to become addicted to it. I have first hand knowledge of drug addiction as our son has had the disease of drug addiction for years. It has destroyed his life.
