I posted this on my FB page which resulted in a lot of mixed comments. What do you think?
The powers-that-be (my GP, my rehab doc, Mommy and I) have decided that the experiment to wean off Sertraline (anti-depressant) and start Cymbalta (both anti-depressant and used for FM pain), in the hopes that I could lose the Lyrica from my daily intake, has failed; so we are reversing all our (my) hard work to go back to the way it was. It wasn’t perfect (far from it) but it was better than what I have now.
So, all good, right? Not quite. I want to be back on the sertraline (and away from icky side-effects) in two weeks – for when I go to Bali (that would be the very festive, hot pink area). So, we are fast-forwarding it all:
Basically, I’m warning you guys that my posts and comments could be…um…interesting (not sure if that would be the right word).
Now, you might be wondering what that last column labelled Codeine is about: after my holiday (vacation for you US citizens), my rehab doc has decided I need to give up codeine (hence the very red part) before we try any other type of pain killer – cold turkey: no panadeine forte, no panadeine extra, no ibuprofen plus, etc! And no anti-inflammatories! I’m doing it at home but he has said that some people have to go to hospital – I hope not me. I am very attached to writing to you guys from my couch each day.
