Is Sertraline effective against Fibro pain?
I am on sertraline 50mg/day in the morn.
it is part of the anti depressant family which is why i originally started taking it. i continue taking it now - to help keep me calm, if im calm then my muscles are less stressed. i am so used to it that i only really notice it if i forget to take it. by the next day i have severe shakes which i am 'blessed' with following severe PTSD. so yes it helps for me. it keeps many things under control for me. i did however try many different combinations etc. before being happier with setraline.
Thanks for your replies. I have not yet started on Sertraline but have it to start now and was only going to take it if there was some feedback on it. I might just try it coz am willing to try almost anything at the moment. Thank you
Hi yes im on sertraline and have been on it a few years, not sure it helps with pain etc but it seems to help with depression, i take other things for the fibro including oxycontin and oxnorm also amitryptilene which is also an antidepressant but it helps me sleep a bit better.
Remember when you start it that it can take up to 4 weeks to have any effect, also it might make you feel a bit odd at first but with me the symptoms went away after a few weeks, good luck x
Thanks 66Amanda66. That is good to know. I am not depressed but the doctor said it would help with the pain because I am depressed and that is causing the pain! Rather frustrating.
i was started on sertraline a few weeks ago as a replacement for peroxetine. I dont get so many problems with my heart and feel ok but very stressed so will get it increased next week when i go for pain assessment at gp's
Thanks, I'm going to keep taking it and see if it helps. Sorry about your stress; hope that subsides for you.
hello i dont take anything like sertaline usaualy for deppression more than anything ,im on prigabalin,deloxitine,an naproxen,an tramodol .
Is this just for fibro and if so how effective are they for you?
Duloxetine is a serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI). Sertaline is a serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) Both are used to treat types of depression, anxiety and FMS and either can be a useful tool in your kit.
hello there these tablets i take are just for my pain i am in hun,only for fibro an cfs i suffer with ,but sometimes dosnt help some days , hope this helpes you xx
Hi, thank you. The sertraline to be helping me with energy at least and the pain is a bit duller. I had a dreadful weekend of pain so it is a good day today. I hope you have good days this week! x
Serotonin Uptakes can change your perception of pain, Yes.
I was started on Sertraline for fibro. I never had a weight problem until I took Gabapentin and Sertraline. The pain went with Gabapentin but I put weight on so rapidly I'd rather have pain than be so overweight. The Sertraline isn't working anymore for pain and I want to stop taking it. I take 100mg. It is tricky to wean off it and it causes weight gain too, among other side effects!! If I could get an appointment with a GP I would start weaning off it. Don't go there unless you feel you have no other choice!
hi there, i take 100mg of sertraline for my fibro and it helps better than citalopram that i was on. I take it every morning but dr is thinking of upping the dose to 150mg and to take it at night. Not to sure about that though. Are you on Sertraline?
