    Thanks for the ideas, Sara.

    Not much of anything makes me sleepy, so the minerals might give me one benefit or another. I haven't taken cal or potassium in a long time so it's probably time to revisit them.

    Best wishes,
    Otis

    I wonder if taking amino's like 5htp and acetyl-tyrosine to boost neurotransmitters like serotonin and norepinephrine can help with pain in a similar way to ad's like duloxetine, maybe without the side effects??

    Feel drugged on 5htp,too. Taking it in the evening does not help ; I will still feel dizzy and fatigued the next morning. L tyrosine and phenylalanine( both d and dl forms) cause thyroid pain with no effect on my muscle pain.

    Pushing the nighttime trazodone dose upwards seems to be helping. "Good" 'ol sleep->pain->sleep cycle.
