Fibromyalgia and Insomnia

It has been noted that Insomnia in Fibromyalgia is being caused by the very same drugs used to treat the pain.

Cymbalta and Savella are both noted as causing insomnia. I took Cymbalta for over 9 months and no wonder my insomnia was worse.

One of the main things those with Fibromyalgia need is sleep and what do you do when your medicine causes Insomnia?

    Thanks for this information. I was debating cymbalta. It was next on my list. But sleep is the most important thing for me. I am trying Atarax now…just got it today.
