|Before using any medication it is important
to check-out its common side-effect profile and determine whether it
could adversely interact with any drugs you are already taking.
In general fibromyalgia patients are more
likely to suffer from drug side effects (an effect of
central sensitization) and in many
cases it is worth starting with half the recommended dose, if your doctor
agrees to such a trial.
However, it is also important to give
any new medication a "good try" before giving up on it - unless the
side-effects are severe or unacceptable.
