Advice & Tips: This medication worked relatively well for my fibro pain, but after about a year or so it started affecting my cognitive functions. I have had difficulty completing sentences and remembering words, and have been unable to drive for the past few weeks. After visiting a neurologist, I am discontinuing this medication on his advice.
