Hmm seems my answer has vanished I,ll try again.... Hi... I am on dosulepin 75 mg anti depressant plus 0.5mg clonezapam nightly .. Not for depression but to scramble the pain signals in the brain... I tried to make them understand fibro fog had eaten my brain ... But was ignored ... Usual for fibro patients... But joking aside they do actually help... If you are unsure about your dose or the type of antidepressant. Please go back to you dr .. Dosulepin was the only one of 3 I tried that didn't make me worse.. Fluoxetine gave me some very weird side effects. But we are all different... And yes I wish people would realise our pain... I answered the poll about fibro bracelets I said I would like one with a button that shouts I have fibro and in pain

Gentle hugs VG x
