I know that there are many treatment options for my fibromyalgia symptoms but I just can't seem to do any of them such as the yoga and most of the medications that have been perscribed to me are too expensive for my budget. The most convient option for my busy schedule is to take a pill. I have borrowed a few tablets of adderall from a friend of mine and it did help me to be more productive and in less pain. Will my physician write me a perscription for adderall and is it expensive? I am so tired of taking naproxen but i suppose it is a must. Please advise!!
It is never safe to take others meds but if it helped your doctor is going to want to know how you knew it would help and you will have to be honest with your doctor. I am on Cymbalta and that seems to help alot but it can be expensive some if you don't have insurance or if your insurance doesn't pay enough you can contact the info I have below and see if they can help or you can go to cymbalta.com here is the other info: Partnership for Presciption Assistance 1-888-477-2669 or www.PPARX.org good luck and hope you find some good relief Fybro is no fun, marjorie zych
The productiveness was only from the drug itself and helped to cover up the pain from your condition. Naproxen can become quite an annoyance over a long period, especially with your condition, as a pain killer due to it's side effects. But adderall is not a drug that should be prescribed for anything other than what it is being prescribed for now, (unless approved by the FDA) so your doctor will most likely deny your request. I would recommend asking your doctor for any alternatives other than amphetamines because they are quite expensive and not meant for your condition.
I have been crippled with Fibromyalgia, some arthritis, a torn rotator cuff in one shoulder and ripped tendons and bursai in the other. I was given Adderall for a short attention span and never used it all. Then I found that if I take even 1/2 a 20 mg pill a day it DIRECTLY affects my pain. This discovery has caused me to stop pain medication.
