    Hi i have been taking green lipped mussel tablets from Holland and Baratt i am now in my 2nd month in taking them and the improvement is amazing.
    Theses are supplements and completely harmless  I just take them with meals and take prescription meds as normal

    Welcome to the community @Galvizach!

    I have moved this post over to our "dealing with chronic pain" group so that members with similar experiences can comment.

    Also, although members can discuss their own medical situation and experiences, it is against community rules to post medical advice or request any. 

    I hope this helps, please get in touch if you have any questions!

    Iv had fibromyalgia since 1983. There isnt a cure. 
    Im on mophine and codine for the pain but they just take the edge off.
    Never heard of lipped mussel tablets. Are you sure they are anything to do with fibromyalgia??
    I doubt it very much.
    The hospitals would know if they did anything to help.
    Anyway glad your feeling better.

    I have been living with fibromyalgia for many years and my morphine use was massive but wasn't really helping so I asked to go to pain clinic as I know that long term use of any drug after a while you get used to them and they don't work after a short wait I got put on matrifen patches I think that's what they are called they have changed me over slowly and I am off morphine now and on patches only and hopefully after a while I will be reduced off them as to be honest nothing helps with the pain and I don't want to become addicted ...
