Summary

Antidepressants of all varieties represent a common form of therapy for many chronic states including fibromyalgia. The majority of antidepressants increase the levels of serotonin or norepinephrine in the central nervous system. Milnacipran is a dual norepinephrine and serotonin reuptake inhibitor and may be effective in the treatment of fibromyalgia.

A common nonarticular rheumatic syndrome characterized by myalgia and multiple points of focal muscle tenderness to palpation (trigger points). Muscle pain is typically aggravated by inactivity or exposure to cold. This condition is often associated with general symptoms, such as sleep disturbances, fatigue, stiffness, HEADACHES, and occasionally DEPRESSION. There is significant overlap between fibromyalgia and the chronic fatigue syndrome (FATIGUE SYNDROME, CHRONIC). Fibromyalgia may arise as a primary or secondary disease process. It is most frequent in females aged 20 to 50 years. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1494-95)
