Hey Fibromites! Sound off! I want to hear from you! I am interested to see how many of us are here with both Fibro and ADD diagnosis.

Quick info about me:
I am 27, was diagnosed with Fibro about 6 years ago. My mama also has Fibro. I was diagnosed 2 months ago with AD/HD combined type.
I take 40mg Vyvanse for ADD, 10mg Prozac and 100mg Trazadone (at night for sleep) for the Fibro.


I am curious how many folks have both ADD and Fibro. There are many brain regions, funtions, and neurotransmitters in common with both conditions. It gets my researcher juices going!

Funny this - I'm tentatively dx with ADHD combined type by the family therapist but never got a dx for the fibromyalgia which started over 40 years ago. My daughter has been dx with FM but hasn't gotten a dx for her ADD. We both have many of the same symptoms and both clearly have both disorders. I figure at least one of my granddaughters will also develop FM as they get older, one has ADHD and the other has Autism.

avinza 60 mg, plus a daily multivamin

I am curious, due to some not so great side effects (severe swelling in my legs and feet to name one) my Dr switched me from Lyrica to Cymbalta. This is my third week and I'm still not so sure about this. Lyrics was a godsend in my opinion..i noticed your taking both. How is the combination working for you?

About me dx adhd:adderal 15mg 3x daily, 60mg Cymbalta, topamax 100mg (migraine prevention) hydrocodone 10/325 up to six times daily, extensive supplements, xanex .5mg up to 4x daily for muscle tightness

i lost my job a while ago and had to give up my beloved lyrica. doc is giving me neurontin instead. im not sure the cymbalta is working for the pain, but it works for my depression

I know this is an old thread, but I thought I'd jump in. Was diagnosed with FM in October 2011. Not currently on any meds for FM. Exercise has done wonders for me with regard to pain and stiffness.

Recently diagnosed with ADD. Taking 10mg Aderall.
