Just diagnosed

I was just diagnosed and put on Relafen to help with the pain of the symptoms of Fibromyalgia. Is anyone on this and do you know if it works or not? I just started the medication and am hoping it works and doesn't interfere with all the other meds I'm on for Bipolar.

Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated as I want some relief of the pain I"m in. It's disturbing my whole life.

I looked up Relafen which is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis . This is not the standard treatment for FMS (fibromyalgia). Usually amitriptyline and something like lyrica are prescribed. It may be that your Dr is working around your other medications. I'd certainly be asking them why. Have you considered seeing a rheumotologist? Best of luck to you.

Yes, I have a scheduled appointment on March 19 with a Rheumotologist. The problem with Amitriptyline is we tried that once when I didn't know I had Fibromyalgia and it interfered with all my other meds I was on. I guess I'll go back to my psychiatrist and see what she says I should do.
