Pain relievers and NSAIDS for fibromyalgia pain- Part 2

See also

Many of us who suffer with fibromyalgia know that we take a rollercoaster ride on pain and pain medication. Sometimes it is tough finding just the right kind of medication. Then of course there are the physicians who do not believe in medication for fibromyalgia. Ditch them; they probably still hang on to the old belief that fibromyalgia does not exist.

In part 1 we talked about the effect antidepressants have on fibromyalgia, this section will deal with other medication which is frequently used for treating the symptoms of fibromyalgia.

Other pain medication for fibromyalgia

Pain relievers

There are different pain relievers that quell the pain associated with fibromyalgia but again, they do not work with every fibromyalgia sufferer. For example, acetaminophen which can be bought over the counter helps make the pain manageable with some people who suffer with fibromyalgia.

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) which can be bought over the counter will not work that well alone but often work when combined with other fibromyalgia medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen.
