Change of Meds

Postby dottydaydream » Wed Mar 06, 2013 1:10 pm

After yet again telling GP that Tramadol are just not helping, and asking for a re-referral to Rheumatologist, I now have had a meds change, and GP has put me on amitriptyline and co codamol. My blood pressure was high, he checked 3 times so now have to have blood tests taken on Friday.
I have heard that amitriptyline can help with sleep? I hope so as sleep is a massive problem for me.

Amitriptalene helps me sleep, i take 100mg at night but it doesn't help with the pain, i have been put on nefopam but tbh they aren't doing much either for the pain :(

Amitriptyline can help with sleep and pain problems, hopefully you'll find it makes a difference to you :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: It can take 4~6 weeks to fully get into your system and take effect, so don't be surprised if you can't feel much difference at first, just try to give it some time. As well as time, you may also find patience is also needed. Sometimes a bit of twiddling can be needed with the dosage as for some, the starting dosage isn't quite right for them.

Co~codamol is used quite often in FM management as well, and for some it really helps. Again, you could find a bit of twiddling dosage~wise is needed for you get the most out of the med.

Hope they bring you some relief :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :goodluck2: :goodluck2:

well I know docs like to start off low dose but the amitriptyline is just one at night 10mg doing nothing at all so far but maybe just needs the dose upping as have heard it does help with sleep, so will ask at next apt, by then the blood tests should be back and maybe shed some light on why my blood pressure was high. Although tbh I think its likely stress as pain was bad and tramadol not helping...co codamol stronger dose is helping.

Thanks for replies...much appreciated.
