Q. Had FMS for almost twenty years now, tried almost everything. Is Lyrica in the "steroid" family? Any one in this community could help me? I have given my few questions to find out an answer. I Had FMS for almost twenty years now, tried almost everything. I'm considering Lyrica but I'd like more info. Is Lyrica in the "steroid" family? If you go on Lyrica for a while & see no improvement with pain, is going off of it a big deal like with other med's, or can you simply just stop taking it? I take Ambien, will that have any interactions? I'm seeing my Doc about this at the end of the month, but I was hoping to get some personal experiences about it. Thanks for any thoughts! Thanks for your answers, keep them coming! A. according to this-
there is a moderate interaction. that means you can take them both but be checked regularly for depression of breath.
Watch this video on YouTube “For a living I do physical therapy for the Naval hospital. I see patients every 20 minutes all day long from 7:30[am] to 4:00[pm]. On an average day, I would see 17 patients and picking up patients; lifting; turning; twisting; teaching them exercises; setting up their exercises on weight machines; teaching them how to run… [I’m] just trying to get back to their daily life, which requires me to be very active in my profession. My life before Back Pain Relief4Life was bad. I wasn’t able to do any of the activities I enjoy such as kayaking, running, biking, swimming… Basically [I was in] extreme pain- unable to get to work on time, unable to get through the day without having to take Advil or Flexeril… I’ve been doing the program for 3 weeks and I’ve had pain in my back for 10 years, with excruciating pain starting about 4 months ago. My back is a lot better. I rarely have to take any Advil, I haven’t taken any muscle relaxers in weeks. I feel more energy; I feel like I can move and just function in my daily life better. I actually have not been late to work in probably 2 ½ – 3 weeks now. And I feel like I’m wanting to get out and enjoy activities outdoors again, that require more energy and more movements. I would recommend Back Pain Relief4Life to anybody who has back pain. If you’re hesitant about starting something new or trying something new because you’ve been through everything from physical therapy, to orthopedics, to surgery, or anything in between – chiropractic, it’s worth your time to come out and try this program. It’s very simple moves and [it’s] a program that restores your life and decreases your pain very simply.” Jessica
