I've had fibromyalgia for 5 years. I got excited when I heard of it in hope of relief. All it has done is make me gain weight. I wish I had never heard of it.

I have been on this medication for about 2 1/2 months. Before I started taking this I could not walk at all and was falling around at least 5 times a day. Now I am walking and not falling. I would think that if it has done this so far for me then within 6 months to a year I should not be feeling all the pain that I do right now.
