Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 year ago):
I truly feel the Gabapentin is the culprit, because all the other drugs were the same and once it was added, the symptoms started. It was much later that we added the Prozac and Xanax after tragedy hit our family.
Would going off the Gabapentin help? If so, what's a good alternative for the fibromyalgia pain, as well as the migraine headaches, which it also prevents?

How will these drugs interract and should i stop taking any of them. Pretty sure the effexor is messing up my sex drive haven't really been taking regularly but need the numb feelings it creates been under a lot of stress lately. I take the percs for pain and get nerve blockage injuections onece per week in neck back, and shoulder. I just started the temazepam because i am having some difficulty sleepihng and taking too may lorazepam to compensate. Have messed up sleep patterns and sleep paralysis problems, Is it possible these meds are interacting and causing my sleeep difficulties?
