In brief: You can try metformi

Metformin is OK to try.
Small doses of Elavil (amitriptyline) or Flexoril at bedtime are also effective for your symptoms. Your doctor can help you with this and adjusting your dose based on how well you sleep. The bigger problem may be stress. It is worth looking into ways to reduce your stress levels. This can help keep you healthy for the future.
