Welcome. I have fibromyalgia also. I take elavil at night to help me get my REM stage sleep. It works fairly well for me but you are right about the computer and about taking your meds by 10:00. I still stay up too late though. I am retired so I can sleep later if I have to but I should use a little more self-discipline!
I have fibromyalygia i take Flexeril 10 mg at 8 pm every evening routine i set a reminder on my cell then by 10 pm im supposed to take the rest of my meds, I Love the advice from a lady earlier that said not to get on the computer 2 hours before bed because it increases your seratonin levels this just may be my problem, I dont take my meds until I go to bed because its Zoloft 100mg, Trazodone 100mg, Trileptel 150 mg, and Klonopin 0.5 mg so im working on setting an alarm and making my stubborn self go to bed , I feel better and I get My REM sleep which is so important for how I am going to feel the next day, so to answer the question I CANT GO WITHOUT MY Meds, Going to bed early and making this one of my goals I Love these Spark teams and Having Someone to talk to and learn things from, Good Night All
