I take Flexeril 10mg for several years but it has been the last two years that some difficulty swallowing has begun....I also have severe cervical spinal stenosis as well as severe cervical bone spurs, arthritis of cervical spine and hands along with Fibromyalgia. Long list when I write it all down..This began at age 50 and fast forward to now age 60.
Took cymbalta but experienced insomnia. Went off cymbalta and joint pain became unbearable. Changed to Remeron and was a zombie and taste was off. I took Prozac for years and wanted my Dr to up the dose from 40 mg but he did not want to and after a hospital stay they put me on the cymbalta. I want to ask my Dr to possibly put me back on Prozac and possibly lyrica. Would like to know if anyone has taken these 2 drugs together and what success they have had. Thanks.
