Sound dangerous. Ive used both but not at the same time. Ive read all those stories about pregabalin, how it can be very dangerous with other drugs or alcohol. Be careful!

I'm taking Oxycotine 60mg slow release, 2x's each day. Along with that, my Doctor has me taking Oxcodone, 30mg, 3 x's a day. Believe it or not, this combo really works. You might want to talk to your doctor about it and see what he said thinks.

I need to take eight 50 mg Tramadol a day. I take for in the morning and for 12 hours later. And one Celexa at bedtime. Tramadol the only thing that works for me better than The stronger narcotics. The downside is, tramadol is very addictive with severe withdrawal if you don't take it in about an hour of your dosage time. And if you run out and can't get any, you will probably go to the ER for withdrawal symptoms, it's that bad! So I guess I'll take tramadol forever. LOL or at least until someone comes up with something better for me that works. God bless you all, Shalom

Pinkcottoncandy, Thanks for the info on tramadol I had no idea it was that addictive. I use it only once in a while.

I am on oxycodone and gabapentin along with a muscle relaxer. I had been on tramadol it didn't work for me and reacts with to many drugs which the pharmacy caught for me. All narcotic pain meds are addictive so you are not going to escape that. I still have the stiffness more so after pushing myself to hard. I am still in search of the magic cocktail of drugs that works for me, why can't it just be one size fits all.

Amen Shammagren, I take Hydrocodonoe and Gabapetin and a muscle relaxant in the am because my back and muscles are screaming every am. I get side effects from the Gabapetin but they are finally starting to taper off! Thank God! I can get house work done again! Well that is until whatever this junk is my husband and daughter gave me. Woke up at 6 am with throat so sore I cannot even swallow. Hoping and praying you find what works for you! 🙏💕

I'm stiff in the mornings too, my muscles and joints. My PCP said it's from the fibro. Muscle relaxers don't help. I have to get a warm shower. It's odd because at night I use the muscle relaxers to relax my tight muscles and fall asleep. 🙏🌼

You would think with so many people with fibro some drug companies would want in on the dollar action and come up with some better drugs. It seems like we all suffer from well this one helps slightly but nothing that really helps. I am tired of being told if a drug works 33 percent it is deemed effective.

Oct 22, 2015 5:44 PM

Shammagren, I agree wholeheartedly! 🙏🌼

Oct 22, 2015 6:05 PM

I take Lyrica and oxy. Also Cymbalta, wellbutrin, lamictal, and abilify. You would think I'd be zombified, but it works. Feeling better... although my hips are KILLING me
