same 400mg has anyone tried it?

My daughter works as an entertainer in chichester, certain weekends are dedicated purely for people suffering from fibromyalgia. A kind lady gave my daughter information on a natural medication she takes called same 400mg. It has clinical trials to support its use. She has now been taking it for 8 years and gets it from America. For her it has improved her sleep pattern, mood in general where anti depressants failed in the past, and joint discomfort associated with fibromyalgia. I took the info leaflet to a pharmacist in boots who confirmed it has been clinically trialled and is safe to take whilst on warfarin and amitryptylline. It is sold it on ebay so i have ordered it to trial... my aim would be to then over months reduce my amitrytylline from 50mg back to 25mg as i know my weight has gone up since the higher dose. Will keep you posted and blog a diary when using it. Kathy from bristol.ps i have primary APS dx 1990 & more recently dx with fibro xx

  • Hi Jet,

    I see you need extra to your warfarin, just out of interest what is your INR? - I have been on Clopidogrel for (AF) (but this was stopped and my warfaring adjusted) which is very similar to aspirin but kinder on the stomach, there is also a new drug coming out soon called Pradaxa, although if you have a history of PE you can't take it, and not sure if it is suitable for APS suffers. check out pradaxa.com. I thought Warafin was ok on it's own with good INR checks? am I wrong.....

    Kathy, what is this drug for? APS, sypmtoms of, or something connected,

    Thanks

    :)

  • Hi Lesley it is used for fibromyalgia i have some literature given to me with an extracts from an herbal book. Mary (the person who sent the info to me) first came across it in canada and has it imported from america, she has been on it now for 8 yrs and says it made an impact on improving her sleep pattern and help with joint pains. She highly recommended it for fibro sufferers. Being curious i showed the leaflet to a pharmacist in boots who looked it up to check if safe to take on warfarin and amitrytylline, my current medication. He said it would be so i thought worth trialling as i dont like the side effect from amitrytylline 50mg (increased from 25mg when in june but defo have noticed increased side effects with increased dose) so hope if same 400mg works i can reduce amy slowly but will also discuss at my next rheumy app in feb. I will copy the ingredients down when i got more time as off out now & as usual put it somewhere safe never remembering where that is ;-) kxx

  • Thank you will be interested to see what they say kathy xx

  • Yes and i have sent off my letter to Doctor Barry Durrant Peatfield, to see what he makes of it. Mary F
