A meta-analysis of fibromyalgia (FM) treatment interventions

  [ 54 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • April 3, 1999


OBJECTIVE: To evaluate and compare the efficacy of
pharmacological and nonpharmacological treatments of
fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS).

METHODS: This meta-analysis of 49
fibromyalgia treatment outcome studies assessed the efficacy
of pharmacological and nonpharmacological treatment across
four types of outcome measures-physical status, self-report of
FMS symptoms, psychological status, and daily functioning.

RESULTS: After controlling for study design, antidepressants
resulted in improvements on physical status and self-report of
FMS symptoms. All nonpharmacological treatments were
associated with significant improvements in all four
categories of outcome measures with the exception that
physically-based treatment (primarily exercise) did not
significantly improve daily functioning. When compared,
nonpharmacological treatment appears to be more efficacious in
improving self-report of FMS symptoms than pharmacological
treatment alone. A similar trend was suggested for functional
measures.

CONCLUSION: The optimal intervention for FMS would
include nonpharmacological treatments, specifically exercise
and cognitive-behavioral therapy, in addition to appropriate
medication management as needed for sleep and pain symptoms.
