    Is taking Percocet just not worth it
    havetolearntoaccept posted:
    After I was diagnosed with FM back in 2009 my doctor (psychiatrist) tried several FM meds like Cymbalta, Savella and Gabapentin. I am already on Paxil for Major Depression. So he finally put me on Percocet 7.5/325 x 4 and that really helped even for an hour or two. My friend talked me into going to a pain doctor and he tried Tramadol and Deuxis but ended up back on the same Percocet. I also am on the patch 15mg. The problem is that my main issue is that I am fatigued, sometimes sleep a lot, and can never find my drive. I hear that Percocet can make it harder to treat depression and after trying everything there is for MDD there isn't anything left for me to try. Does anyone think I am giving up ever getting my drive back as long as I am on Percocet? I may try going back to my neurologist and see if he can find a way to treat my FM without Percocet. Posted in FM Area also.
