I have fibromalagia, I have been perscribed Trazadone 100mg for sleep. I also take Zyprexa to prolong the effect of Trazadone. I take a tablet and 1/2 each night 2 hours before bedtime along with the one Zyprexa and I fall into a deep sleep and do not waken at all during the night. I wake up in the mornings feeling rested. It's the best sleep I have had in a long time. My Rheumatologist said that it was an old medication that is frequently used now for people having trouble going to sleep. I also have simulation depression that I take a new kind of drug called Lexapro that works real good. I take ultram for pain. I also have cervical spondylosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, osteoarthritis, and severe carpal tunnel bilateral after surgery. Each person is different but I find that this medication works best for me. Follow what your Dr. perscribes as he knows what is best for you to take for your condition. Good Luck and if you need to talk please email me.
Hey Glenda, my 9yo and my husband both have NF1. My son has it worse than his dad. I see all the pain that he goes through and I want to take it away from him so he could be normal like the other kids in his age group. He is the brave one and just keeps trying. My Fibromyalgia is causing sleep problems and the trazadone has really helped I have been on it for about a year. I also take Lexapro (antidepressant) 10mg in the morning. Lexapro is new and I haven't had any side effects with it. It doesn't make me sleepy and I wake up in the mornings instead of sleeping half the day. It maybe a good idea to be referred back to your rheumatologist especially since you have had Fibromyalgia before. Take one day at a time Good luck and God Speed
