Going to definitely use the fibroguide and youtube video in my practice. Thanks!! Will add cyclobenzaprine to the duloxetine and gabapentin that I am already using. Never thought of cyclobenzaprine as a weak tricyclic:). I knew narcotics were not recommended but now I know they are REALLY not.
Upon checking the comments on the youtube video, I recommend you to be very clear on what the title means, "is it all in their head". People seem to be very offended by the title, so you should give a thorough explanation, otherwise the patient might be unwelcoming to the information.
Thank you for tuning-in and for taking the time to provide feedback. We really appreciate and enjoy all comments. Just to clarify the YouTube video you are referring to is not something we created rather something we just shared as a resource.
