Do you need to go into hospital to get off the meptid? That can be a real issue with the strong opioids.

When you do discuss future options with your doctors, remember that etodolac is an NSAID so not really for Fibro. Also domperidone may worsen Fibro because it works by blocking dopamine (which we're already low in).
I run FibroAction, a small national charity raising awareness of Fibromyalgia Syndrome. I am not a qualified healthcare professional. If you would like medical references for any facts quoted, just PM me.
