I just reads the post on Cymbalta and insomnia.  I see my Rheumy and sleep MD in 2 weeks for a review of all htat has been going on esp. during my recent and only humongous flare.
I'm thinking they might want me on Lyrica.  I've had chronic insomnia for 2yrs.  I even wonder if my intermittant fatigue was the FM in its infancy.  I am worried about weight gain and insomnia.  The trazadone doesn't work by itself and I need the reciently ordered Lunesta.
Help I need some advice!

Lyrica almost immediately helped my sleep and still is 11 months later. Because of this I'll take it as long as I can. I have gained about 30 lbs. and am having a very difficult time losing it. Diane
