    Paracetamol doesn't do anything for me, I take Iburprofen for pain relief but you have to be careful if you have stomach problems.

    Hi,

    Amitriptyline tablets are also prescribed in the UK, they are an anti depressant but also a muscle relaxant, they help with sleep too. Can leave you a bit groggy next day but very effective once established

    Hiya.Chantal,..Amithriptilyne is  the only med I take for Fibro...gives me a great pain free sleep..- no pain..still feel a tad drowsy waking up...but that sleep is what makes this Fibro manageable for me..only get flare ups now..once  it was just constant  pain almost everywhere and sleepless nights..I take it 7pm before bed..it really does work wonders ( for me..that is,) we are all very different..I take 25 mg...never had it increased either ...started on 50mg but I was like a zombie...all the next day..dropped to 10mg for a while-still not too good but 25 mg is perfect for me..it is actually an antidepressant that works excellent for pain..it numbs the nerve ends and stops the pain from jumping on to the next nerve..hence a very painful body...the antidepressant is probably a lil bonus as most of get depressed from time to time..yes it does knock me out to give me that great sleep which is just sooo needed, to be able to deal with the pain etc the next day..but once I'm up and dressed..I'm fine.....Its great...16yrs down the track..have to be woken up in the morning..but once up and about I'm just fine.....when I was first on them I was like a zombie..but it's like a miracle med for me... it takes a while to settle in. ..also, please remember that less stress is the key to Fibro....be blessed..have a lovely day..:-) xxx

    Hi Chantal

    Have you considered herbal remedies.  Message me privately if you need more info.  These remedies are all natural so will not harm your body.

    I have suffered of pains for over 20yrs and was only diagnosed Aug 2014 with Fibro.  I don't like to take meds, but at the start of 2015 I tried some herbal remedies and although it takes a few months to see the effects I can honestly say I am pain free with only tiredness and sleep issues but I am working on that too now.

    I here to offer advise so please message for more info.

    Take care wink xx
