I was wondering if anyone else if taking supplements in addition to their prescription meds for Fibro. Also if anyone else is trying to follow an anti-inflammatory diet.
I have not only fibro but also osteoarthritis. Currently I take: wellbutrin for the depression, meloxicam for the arthritis inflammation and gabapentin for pain ( new study showed Gaba in doses of 1200-1499 mg a day was great pain relief for fibro). I also have sleeping pills in very limited quantities for when I truly can't sleep for many days in a row...which thankfully is improving. However, I also take the following supplements:
*multivitamin with extra iron and B complex
*Holy Basil (New Chapters brand)
*Zyflamend (New Chapters anti-inflammatory)
*calcium chews..yum they are chocolate
I also try to eat a mostly anti-inflammatory diet. I use www.nutritiondata.com
as a great resource as they include inflammatory factor in their info for most foods.
Just wondering what else people have tried with success.
