not sure about meds

Postby joanna-faith » Tue Aug 07, 2012 8:52 pm

I am so confused over medication have been since diganosed, i am on amirtiptylene which luckly does help me sleep and have been on tramadol which i found didnt do much only make me want to sleep every second of the day so i dont take them very often but my doctor seems very unsure what to give me and dont really want to try new meds.
Can anyone suggest some medication that could help i will mention it to my doctor
Thankyou. :blowkiss:

Linky to info about the types of meds used to try and manage FM http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Fibromyalg ... tment.aspx

As well as the pain killer type meds, gabapentin and pregabalin are regularly used to try and manage FM, so you could ask if one of them might be suitable for you to try. They are anticonvulsents that have been found to help with FM, something to do with reducing the amount of electrical activity in the brain which can help with reducing the pain messages that fire off around our bodies.

Hello, I'm on Amitriptyline, Diazepam, Pregabelin and a patch (Transtec) which has morphine in it. Hope this helps :-)

Different docs seem to have different ideas about how to treat us so its a bit of a mess really :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes:

I just stopped taking amitriptyline because it was making me cry loads! I am still in limbo as to what my illness actually is though. Just on cocodamol and naproxen now, so sleepy though.
