    It's a shame you had to come off trazadone so suddenly, that's probably really messed your head up, not to mention the operation and heart diagnosis babe, I'm so sorry xx

    I don't know about those particular meds (I'm on Cymbalta, 8 years now) but someone on here will. I hope you can discuss it with your doctor, too.

    Lots of love and keep posting xxx

      Nice one, I hope your doctor understands it not just the physical, but the mental stuff that you're having to deal with. I suppose the issue is finding the right combination of medications that don't interfere with each other?

      I know what what it's like to have your medication changed when you've come to trust and rely on it, grrrr!

      Do you think there's something in your heart meds that's stopping you sleeping, or is it all the thoughts racing? I don't know about you, but it might help if you took a list tomorrow so you don't forget anything x

      Sounds like you're being looked after really well and they've taken you seriously (small miracle!). How are you feeling about tomorrow? Thanks for the update x

      Yes, i bet you're fed up and annoyed (putting it mildly!) that you have to be doing this, especially as none of it is your fault, or under your control. I know how you feel, really I do. Will you take a diazepam before you go? x
