Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

I tried it briefly too. I started on 25mg, and almost immediately experienced severe tingling of my scalp, and goosebumps on my arms and legs. Within two days, my resting heart rate increased to ~77 (it usually runs ~64) and blood pressure went up 10 points. These symptoms, while not severe, didn't improve so the doctor told me to stop taking it. I wasn't on it long enough for it to have any affect on my fibro pain.

I tried it for a little bit. It really helped the fibro pain but I had some other issues going at the same time, (big surprise) and they took me off of it. I am thinking about asking my gp for another try on it.
