I currently take Savella (an antidepressant specifically for fibromyalgia
) and Vicodin 7.5/750 3x daily for my fibromyalgia
pain. As bamabred said, opioids can be very addictive - I did not begin taking opioids for my body pain until about 4 years ago. Before that I had some for migraines, but only took them sparingly. I used OTC pain killers, Ultram, Vioxx (until it was outlawed), etc... When my back pain became unmanageable, my physician sent me to a pain management clinic.
