Hi there. I'm so sorry to hear you're feeling so poorly. I know the feeling :-(. What anti depressant were you on because I'm afraid your doctor doesn't know what he's talking about!! You can take amitriptyline or nortriptyline completely safely with pregablin. Ive been on the long come down road of coming off pregablin as after doing hours and hours of research it's making me worse not better and has been poisoning my system!! Every individual is different tho and it depends on what you're feeling like?? It takes a long time, a lot of patience and a lot of reading but I urge you to do some research and battle with your doctor. I'm afraid they don't always know best!! Most of the best information comes from American websites etc as they've ploughed so much more money into research and treatment of fibromyalgia. My pain consultant is amazing and he let's ME make all the decisions on what drugs etc I feel are best (after he's recommended them!!) You need a bloody good doctor thru this awful illness who will help not hinder. I really hope this has helped a little. Please feel free to private message me if you'd like to chat or more help or just an ear :-)

I'm a newby to this as well so welcome to us both eh :-)

I was taking pregablin and amatriptalene together. I stopped takin pregablin because it personally wasn't helping (and I'm a woman and I gained about 2 stone in a month so NEEDED to stop)

I think you should speak to your doc, they will try and mix and match. They put me on on another anti-depression tabs (citralopram) and they helped me. The one thing i've found with this illness is that no 2 people are the same so its a trial and error.

Good luck matey, Stay strong :-)

Hi :-) Excuse the spellings here :crazy:

There are quite a few anti ep drugs. It all depends what you have tried already. I'm not saying that you have to take then but I have tried them but they didn't work for me :cry:


Carbamazapine
Lamotrogine

Instead of amatripiline there are a few other anti Dees about but I tried citalapram

Thats the only ones I can remember but it gives you a basic idea.

Let me know how you get on :-)
