Tyno, we all react differently to meds. I took prozac for a few days and it had me climbing the walls. Effexor was like trying to function on sleeping pills everyday. I can't even remember what all I have tried. Sometimes they do just stop working for us.
I eat very little meat cause of digestive problems. I do crave hamburger at times. I have swallowing problems too and stay away from dry things that are hard to swallow, like chicken. I have very dry mouth and throat and have to wash everything down with liquid.
But like you I tend to reach for the comfort foods. I thought it was a side affect from the amitriptyline but maybe it is my body wanting the carbs. I'm on two different anti-depressants so you would think that would be enough.
Xanax and the amitriptyline work well for me to sleep on most nights.
I'm sorry your doc can't see fibro. You may want to think about changing docs.
Have you tried the malic acid/magnesium combo???
luv and hugs
