haggis - March 17

Hi, Im new to this forun, in fact I'm new to FMS! I was diagnosed in November last year after 4 long years of aches and pains and having surgery 8 times to try and cure problems in my shoulders! after the last procedure i decided that i couldn't take anymore as they didn't seem to be doing me much good so i was refered to a Rheumotoligist who confirmed the FMS. Anyway, to get back to my question, and forgive me if this has already come up in the forum, i wanted to know what people have been prescribed. I should mention that I am from the UK, and i am on (excuse the spelling) 100mg Amptrypaline, Co-codimol, diclofenic and other stuff to stop my stomach reacting to the diclofenic! From what i have seen on the uk forum, this is the norm, is it any different in the States?

I am on many medications: Paxil & Wellbutrin for depression, Lyrica, Diclofenac & Ultracet for pain, Alprazolam for anxiety, Baclophen for muscle relaxer. Also take Ibuprophen, Fiornal & Naproxen as needed for pain. I have Lunesta or Equate PM as needed for sleep. I try to take meds with some food or milk. The Dr. also has me take 1,000 IU of Vitamin D per day. When my stomach hurts I take liquid antacid or Zantac. This seems like a lot of meds, but I don't know what else to do! I am looking forward to spring & the warmer weather as winter months are the worst for me.

I only take amytriptyline (not sure if I spelled it right either), but only 50 mg. 100 mg seems like a lot! I have been prescribed Mobic for pain but take it infrequently (only took it once this year so far for about a week). this seems to keep my pains at bay but I still have fibrofog.
