I've come to realize that this is one of the most frustrating illness that one can have. I've been struggling with this for over a year now trying to find the right combonation of medications as I also have Lupus and rhuemtaoid arthritis and migraines. I have two boys and a husband who don't quite understand why mom can't do the things that mom's should do. it seems like the meds either make you want to sleep all the time or make you stay awake there is no happy medium. I have no moved on to Cymbalta 60 mg a day I've only been on it a few days but I can sort of tell a differnce, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I also take 100 mg of topamax a day for migraines, it's a trial and error disease until you find the right meds and the right doctor who will help you. I think we have to be our own advocate. Good luck and I hope you find the right answers
