Trimipramine is the only drug used as a hypnotic that does not alter sleep architecture. It is sometimes better for sleep than amitriptyline. It is sometimes used for pain disorders. However, I don't know what its effects are on FM.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trimipramine

"The spectrum of effects (strong antidepressant activity, sedation and anxiolysis) and side effects (strong anticholinergic and antiadrenergic symptoms) is similar to those of doxepin. It is also a more effective sedative than amitriptyline. Trimipramine is the only effective drug against insomnia known so far that does not alter the normal sleep architecture. In particular, it does not suppress REM sleep"

I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
