I don't use those medications for my fibro.  I use ibuprofen with food, extra strength Tylenol, malic acid/magnesium supplements and vitamin D3 to help with my pain.  These take the edge off for me and I don't have all the possible side affects.
 
If you haven't already, check out the Fibor 101 thread...the second thread on the forum.  You will fine info about the malic acid/magnesium supplements and the vitamin D3.  Also, you will find good stretching exercises.  You do need to keep moving and stretching with fibro or you will be stiff as a board and the pain will be worse.
 
Also, start doing something you like or read a book or watch a movie...anything to get your mind off the pain.  It does fade in the background some when you do this.
 
I hope you start to feel better.

Extended release tylenol, benedrly to calm your nerves and help u sleep, get some epsom salt and take a hot bath, wrap up with a warm blanket electric if you have it.  DO not tense up though you are in pain it only makes it worse. 
Watch a favorite funny movie, call a funny friend  get the idea...
Get your mind off the pain.
 
Bengay or creams, those heat stick on pads lots of options.
 
Hope you find relief soon.
