Over the years I have been on a variety of medications for fibro. I have used tens, physio as well as had trigger point injections and blocks.

I found that the side effects from a lot of these drugs actually seemed to either increase my symptoms or mimic them. I asked the Dr to wean me off them.

I have quite a few conditions that I need treatment for and those meds have nothing to do with the fibro. We have found 2 meds that make my life more tolerable in regards to the fibro. For the last 8 years I have been on the same dose of 150 mg of wellbutrin daily as well as 150 mcg per hour of Fentanyl, delivered by patches. Now on occasion I do need something for breakthrough pain.

I do realize that we are all not the same and we deal with pain and fibro symptoms differently, however, in my opinion I think that some of the meds we can be prescribed can make us feel drowsy and have extra pain etc due to side effects. I feel if we could eliminate some meds we might actually feel somewhat better.

I agree with Whoami as sometimes we get meds added onto the top of other meds and we end up taking so many pills we rattle, having a decent review can sometimes eliminate a few without reducing pain relief and thus reducing side effects and in some cases a bit of the fog. So its always worth having a check through with your doc every now and again :-D :-D :-D

Thanks guys for your replies Fluffypuppy you are right in terms of tramadol and paracetamol being taken up to 4 times a day unfortunately you cant if there is a 3 hour gap between your last dose at night till you take amitriptyline as tramadol and amitriptyline do not mix GP did not tell me he prescribed them as 4 times a day it was the pharmacist who pointed it out

I try and batch them out like 8am,12.30-1pm and 5-6pm night time ones about 10pm

Then will sleep till 7 but feel like been asleep an hour as am back after lunch
