Narcan??????

Jun 15, 2017 8:41 AM

Is anyone taking narcan for their fibro??? My doctor said he was at a seminar a couple weeks ago on fibromyalgia and they said that the new trials using narcan are promising. Apparently fibro effects the same neurons (I think) as drug overdoses do and it's meant to calm them to a point where some have gotten 30% reduction in their fibro pain. Low dose. I take 25 mg 3 times a day.

I have been researching this cause I heard about it also. I was wondering does it help.

So far it's hard to tell. I've only been on it a week but for the past 5 nights I've been waking up at 3am and can't get back to sleep. Don't know if it's the meds or not.
