    They had her try lyria first and she had terrible side effects, cymbalta seems to do the trick and it also replaces her anti depression meds. Shes been on it a couple months now along with all the other supps I've had her trying, especially the magnesium (and mcc), shes felt better than she has in years!

    That is great news!Fibromyalgia is very hard to treat and it is good when a sufferer can find something that works for them.

    Yes she did, I agrre with what you suggested she def needed it! I've spent a lot of time researching how messed up our nutrients have become here in 'merica, its shocking how little things like iodine we get in what people consider a normal diet, and how screwed up our thyroids and adrenal glands are because of the crap we eat. Diet and nutrition is more exhausting than lifting! I'll look into glutathione for sure!

  6. Glad to hear of her good progress! With my wife's ulcerative colitis, I always kept the mindset that if I kept learning..something better might be around the next corner in terms of treatment or even a cure. We never got that far, but we did reduce the symptoms considerably.

  7. It's been a long ass time but if anyone cares to know, wife was on 60 mg cymbalta for the last year or so with good results, we decided late last year that was time to work on make a baby, then the doctor told us about possible birth defects they are finding new so she's now trying to taper off and not going well at all. They wanted her on 120mg doses but there's like no insurance that'll pay for that kinda dosage so cold only do 60, we have had extremely clean diets and have done multiple detoxes, also been running green mag, 3g fish oil, coq10, lclt, 5htp, b complex, and a little additional magnesium and even though she needed a much higher dosage of her medicine this has kept symptoms (especially the restless leg syndrome) very manageable up to this point . also found out last month she has developed pcos(her sisters have it too so they've given get ultrasounds every couple years) so they started her on metformin and pre natal vitamins and I got her on 5 grams inositol a day and its helping a lot, hers isn't past the point of being treatable thankfully. So just posting in case anyone ever needs a little help with this like I did! We eat mostly lean meat and veggies every meal, no soda, very few sweets, carbs come from fruits and whole grains like Ezekiel toast for bfast(though this winter is driving me crazy, it's been way to cold out for too long this year in Indiana, **** needs to warm up so I can start grilling again! )

  8. Glad to hear she's getting some relief.
