Light at the end of the tunnel?

Postby shelby1975 » Thu Oct 16, 2014 10:07 pm

After a horrific time withdrawing gabapentin, I am now taking pregabalin. There is a definite improvement hurrah. Fingers crossed it lasts, I may be far from 'normal' but can finally go back to work. My only issue is the disrupted sleep. Ive been to incontinence clinic so hopefully that will help but I am still clenching at night I feel if I could lessen that thehere would be far less pain and maybe less sleep disturbance. I am still taking sertraline nightly and not sure if thi is having any effect. Any ideas on this?? :-?

Might give it a try. I find it easy to go to sleep but I can't control the tensing and clenching whe I sleep. I wake up so many times and have to do stretches just to get out of bed in the morning. Its like all my muscles have locked??

Hi Sertraline is meant to be taken in the morning , it will be contributing to sleep problems if taken at night. Hope this helps

Thanks. Wasn't told a specific time for the sertraline just once daily

Hello ,
I clench my hands and jaw at night , i wonder ,is this to do with my fibro or anxiety? I take amitryptaline at night and venlofaxine in the morning.

Gabapentin caused me to pee uncontrollably and then pregabalin stopped me from peeing at all.

The doc now put me on duloxetine and for the first time since this hell began 11 years ago i actually do not have any fibro pain but the pills are upsetting my stomach - again! Unfortunately i cannot say the same for the fatigue or the migraines, which have reappeared.

Always Ask your pharmacist when you should take your medication.
