This is a new anti-depressant medicine that has the added benefit of a pain reliever in it. I have chronic fatigue and my doctor put me on this medicine just over a month ago. So far I have really liked it. I have noticed a slight decrease in my overall achiness. So far I have not noticed any side effects. I know some people who have fibromyalgia that have also had some good success on this medication. Has anyone else used this medication and if so, have you had any negative side effects? success?

I have fibromyagia and have suffered for years with pain in and around my joints. Then I found Mannatech's Ambrotose and I don't have any pain as long as I stay on the product. It isn't a cure but it sure helps. You can go to the Mannatech.com site or get it through your health food store. I don't know if it will help you but it sure helped me. It does take about a month before you will see good results so don't expect to take 1 pill or a few measures of powder and be instantly cured. It takes time but it is worth it....at least for me.
