In brief: Back to basics
Fibromyalgia is tough.
The best advice is exercise routinely, watch your diet, get proper sleep(without drugs) and stay positive. While the meds typically presribed can help, some like savella (milnacipran) can cause high blood pressure. There is no one perfect simple solution, unfortunately.

In brief: Fibromyalgia
You are having reactions to medications.
Discuss this with your doctor to switch medications to ones that do not cause reactions. Try to get by with less medicine. Try meditation, yoga, anti-stress activities, hot baths, massage and other non medication techniques for controlling your pain. Diet is very important.
