    Although I am not running foot races, I am up and busy every day. That is opposed to bed rest before.

    I am still on 600mg Neurontin--will increase to 1200mg
    10mg ambien @pm
    Doxycycline 100mg 2X a day
    Doxepin 25 mg 3x day
    Nothing is perfect yet I am functional and working in my house every day. I awake feeling so rested. If I do too much , I just feel a little slow. I have a pretty hectic scedule, so I am well pleased.Am going to church regularly.

    ...how different we all are! I'm so glad this is helping you.
    I had to go off Neurontin because it caused horrible pain and zombism ,even at low doses, not to mention weight gain.
    Ambien made me hallucinate.
    Doxepin caused me to gain a pound per day and sleep for 14 hrs. a night.
    I am allergic to doxycycline.
    So, if I was on your regimine, I'd be dead!
    This illustrates why it is so wrong for doctors to treat us all the same. Most of them give every new Fibro patient a script for Elavil, without any regard to individual history.
    I pray you will keep getting these good results.
    I've gone back to what always worked best for me: Xanax, Benadryl and GABA, and I feel so much better on it.
