Hi and thank you for your question. I am a verified Expert and I am happy to help you today. I am sorry you are feeling so bad. Are you currently taking any medications? If so...which?

only omeprazole and tablet to help me sleep had some for depression but made me sick so stoped them and tried tables to help with pain but they dont work
Expert:  CamilleRN replied 5 years ago.
What you need is a Doctor that will over see all of your current problems...including depression. Untreated Depression will accentuate all of your other ills, particularly pain due to fibromyalgia. With depression, what works for one person may not work for another... so it is a matter of trying different antidepressants until you find the right one for you. Usually the Doctor will order an antidepressant on a trial basis for a few weeks to a month to see if it helps, if not, then that one is discontinued and a new one started. Don't get discouraged... this is a very common problem...but if you hang in there and have your Doctor try different antidepressants until one works, then depression will no longer be a factor, which will lessen the symptoms of your fibromyalgia as well. I hope this information helps you, if I can help further, please let me know:-)

well doc tuck me off tablet and never said about other one just if depression gets bad again she put back on same ones again
Expert:  CamilleRN replied 5 years ago.
I would recommend you make an appointment to talk to him. Let him know that the depression is causing you to feel unwell... that you would like to try different antidepressants with hopes that an effective medication can be found for you. IN this day and age there are many antidepressants to chose from, so there is no need for him to give you one that you already know wasn't effective for you. If he doesn't seem interested in helping you with this, make an appointment with another Doctor.
