May 5, 2016 · Juggling meds with fibromyalgia, arthritis and heart problems in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Still haven’t gotten my sleep meds to work well, mostly in getting to
sleep. After I get to sleep, I am good for 3 or 4 hours, the arthritis pain
in the hips and back wake me up. If it is after 4 am, I will usually just
get up, if below, I will get up and move around some and can usually get
another hour or so of sleep. Last month my doctor tried me on rozerem and
it has not worked well at all. I was on Zolpidem for several years, but the
insurance companies has refused to pay for it any more, so trying other
options. Tried Valerian Root for a week or two and helped at first, then
didn’t. Now trying to double up on Doxepin and that kinda works, but not
well.

May 4, 2016 · Juggling meds with fibromyalgia, arthritis and heart problems in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Hi, I am 81 with fibromyalgia, arthritis and heart problems. This winter the fibro and arthritis pain has created really difficult sleeping problems because of the pain levels. I have been juggling meds around trying to find something that works. Yes my doctor at Mayo, is in the loop. Have tried some herbs but that hasn’t helped much. Looking for new ideas.
