Are there other fibro people here that take amitriptolyne and do they think it is doing a good job ? or have switched to something else that works better ? .. I started out at 50mg at night about 3 years ago, and now I'm on 100 which is split to 50 at 7 PM and then 50 at 9PM to try and get relaxed to fall asleep .. I also take 1500mg of L-Tryptophan, a generic sleep aid called zopiclone up to 15mg now because it is losing it's affect since I have been on it so long .. I'm beginning to panic a bit because I can't usually sleep more than 2 hours at a time .. I think my thyroid problem reduces the metablisim of all my drugs some how and I still wake up with pain in any case .. is there anyone out there with a similar situation ?
