Patient discussion about dextro

Q. Is it right and helpful. My friend who is having his own pharmacy told me once that the tablet like aspirin which is one among the counter medication is good for fibromyalgia. Is he right and helpful?

A. I don’t like to comment whether he is right or wrong because the effectiveness will vary from individual to individual. A large percentage of fibromyalgia patients use over the counter drugs like aspirin, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen to alleviate their symptoms and relieve pain. And certainly a larger percentage of individuals with fibromyalgia who have not been properly diagnosed with FMS use these sorts of non-prescription medication. In some cases, fibromyalgia sufferers may rely heavily on OTC meds simply because their treating physician either does not understand their condition, or is reluctant to prescribe stronger analgesics. However, even for those who are able to use over the counter medications, their effectiveness will vary tremendously from individual to individual.
