I am so messed up, I sleep most of the day, then I'm up all night (right now it is 4:51am). Please, I need suggestions for what to take to help me sleep.
Are you on any meds for fibro or insomnia now? If not, you really need to see a Rheumatologist. They are the best when it comes to Fibromyalgia.
You can try to stay up all day today, and tonight try Melatonin, which is an all natural sleep aide. You may purchase this at any supermarket or pharmacy.
It comes in capsule form.
Also, Benadryl helps as well, if you are not taking any Benzodiazapines.
If you would add the info requested, we can much better help you!!!
I have fibro and was rx'ed amitriptyline, which is an old antidepressant that often helps fibro pain, nerve pain and insomnia, it is taken at night. I took 25 mgs, but you can actually start at 10 mgs and go up if you need to. Within 25 minutes after my first dose of amitriptyline, I was so sleepy, I laid down and immediately went to sleep. The first thing I noticed when starting amitriptyline was my migraines dropped fro 8 per month to 1, and no one had told me it also helps many with migraines. Amitriptyline is cheap and it often works, I recommend you try it at least. Patti
