@merpreb The PCP in this medical group no longer prescribe controlled substances. I do have the Gabapentin which I take when the fibromyalgia stuff becomes too uncomfortable. I don’t like taking it very often as it can make me wiggy if taken regularly. It had me messed up at one time. I asked for a lower dose and this helped. Are there any other pain meds that are not narcotics??

I took Tramadol 50 mg. I think that can still be prescribed but who knows now. I was dependent on it, but never had to increase the amount I took. It worked well for my pain. Check with your physician about it. Good luck Parus.

@parus My Dr. prescribes Tramadol 50 for me doesn't have any problems They did require the Dr. to fax it at first but now she just calls it in. In face I called the other day for a renewal and they filled it. Now it maybe since I fractured my back I have been on it I only take 1 or 2 depending on how I fell . Have you asked your Dr. about this? Dr. also knows I have fibro and O.A. Tell the Dr. about your pain and why you have it with your problems don't just tell her about your depression/anxiety problem this a separate thing.

@parus- Some of us have suggested stronger NSAIDS. They do need prescriptions however. Check them out. Some are very very good.
