Hi maxwellous, I feel for you. I've stopped my 40mg fluoxetine which I've been on for years. I was supposed to up the Amitriptyline but I didn't and I'm not taking any pain meds either. My legs, hips, ankles, feet and arms are very painful too. Going to see GP on Friday evening to see what can be done for me. Hope you manage to get some restful sleep tonight. Hugs, Mags x


Thanks. That's what I was going to do, change meds but decided not to at least with Dosulapin I only had one bad side effect, that was tiredness, which as you know we have that anyway.

Same here with arms legs etc.

Good luck with your gp!.

Smiles to you. xx :-) :-)
