... sleeplessness as long as everything else in my life was going well. Now that it is not going so well I find I am unable to cope and panic constantly and think about death every day. I am able to sleep with the Endep but wake a lot and wake with anxiety .Would the meds be the problem? Tina
I have been on pristiq for depression for along time and it works great. Also, I like voltaren along with zanaflex. Voltaren is an anti- inflammatory, and zanaflex is an anti-spasm and muscle skeletal. I only need one at night. Also I have been on Ambien for over 9 years for sleep. I just recently went to Ambien CR and they are great, they help me fall asleep, and stay asleep. Cymbalta is for depression and that pain that can come with it. Not for pain from fibro. Just something I wanted to mention. Hope this helps. :)
I would be leery of stopping the Endep, because when I reduced the medication that had helped my fibromylagia so much for a number of years, it took many months AFTER returning to the original dose to get my fibromyalgia under control again. Yes, you should talk to your doctor, but it would seem that if Endep has helped with your pain for a number of years and now that things are not going well with you, that it would seem that your panic and difficulty are because of what has changed in your life. It would seem to be better to get on medications to help with your panic and sleep problems. Good luck to you.
