Hi, Angela - I haven't tried it yet but been discussing it with my docs. I'm in the same boat with the Neurontin not working so hot anymore. So hopefully someone with some experience will be able to tell both of us more about it.

I have not had good results with either both of those and including cymbalta made me so sick... guess my system can't tolerate that drug family... going back to dr today I cant find a rheumy that is taking new patients or that will take my insurance so not sure what I am going to do. This dr is not real good but the only one in my network.

I tried the cymbalta as well made me sick not sure why have been on mobic as well same thing... the neurontin made me start to loose my hearing so I couldn't continue it either. Being referred to yet another neurologist *sigh*

hey mzbeans, sorry that nothings not working yet. how long have you been on mobic? im on it too and your the firsr person ive met that's on it, let alone heard of it! so, it's not working for you? i thought it wasnt, so i stoppd it, but then realized that it was :shock: im tappering off neuronting now and the neuropathy is really kicking in!!

good luck with the new neuro :)
