Fibromyalgia Treatment Overview


Fibromyalgia Treatment Overview Because there is no known cure for fibromyalgia, treatment efforts are generally centered around relieving symptoms and improving quality of life. A multi-disciplined approach, which includes a combination of medication, alternative/complementary therapies, nutritional supplements, exercise and lifestyle adaptations, seems to work best for most patients.

In treating FM, it's important to remember that what works well for one individual may not work at all for another. Finding an effective FM treatment plan is usually a matter of trial and error. It's essential for the doctor, patient, and other health care professionals to work together as a team to develop an effective individualized treatment plan.

 
There are currently three FDA-approved drugs for the treatment of fibromyalgia:
  • Lyrica (pregabalin)
  • Cymbalta (duloxetine)
  • Savella (milnacipran)
A number of other drugs are also prescribed off-label for FM. They typically fall into these categories:
  • Analgesics
  • Antidepressants
  • Anticonvulsants
  • Muscle relaxants
  • Anti-anxiety medications
  • Sleep aids
  • Narcolepsy medications
For more detailed information, see Medications for Fibromyalgia.
