I am taking savella, lamotrigine, dexedrine, tramadol, avapro, singulair, nasonex, lasix, crestor, hydroxyzine and hydrocodone. Every two or three weeks, I have flu-like symptoms for a day or two. I don't know if any or all of these cause the symptoms. I have fibromyalgia and most of these are to reduce my pain and fatigue, but nothing really seems to help. Maybe just make it worse.
You make me feel good. I thought I take a lot of meds each day. You take more than me. I'm not surprised they give you some kind of crummy feelings. But when you said Flu like symptoms what came to my mind of opiate withdrawal. You only seem to take 1 opiate. Do you run out of Hydrocodone early, and then have to wait a week or 2 to get more? And do the flu like symptoms go away shortly after you get more? If so then you know where they are coming from. That's the only idea I have, because I'm not even sure what all those drugs are. I know most of them, but not all of them. Hopefully someone else knows more than me. Have you asked your doc what could be causing the flu symptoms? What did he say? It wouldn't shock me one bit if he said he didn't know. That would be so typical.
