I take propranolol for Tremors from taking Gabapentin. I wanted to know if propranolol has withdrawal symptoms because I am weening off all meds to see if my new symptoms were caused by all the meds. I want to add meds as needed for Fibromyalgia.
I am so sorry that you have Fibromyalgia. It is so painful and fatiguing. The stomach problems that come with it are no fun either.
I have had Fibromyalgia for several years. I take Gabapentin only as needed when the pain from neuritis (right cheek) gets bad. Most of the time I take Essiac (available at health food stores for pain relief). When it gets too bad I take Naproxen. When I first got Fibromyalgia, I was all bent over with pain - could hardly walk and it was a chore to get out of bed in the morning.
I can truly say that Essiac has helped me tremendously. But, since your body is not my body, I don't know if it would help you. I got tremors from corticosteroids not Gabapentin. So I can't take any steroids. - Lyrica is usually prescribed for Fibro' but it's also a "gaba" and not everyone responds the same. I hope that it helps you if that what's your doctor prescribes.
I hope you are successful in weaning yourself from other meds. I only take one daily (diltiazem) for my heart. I also take supplements which help. Was reading that most people with Fibro need Vitamin D3 and Potassium.
