Doubling Up To Fight Fibromyalgia Pain
Monday 1 August 2016
From Canadian publication Queen's Gazette:
Doubling up to fight pain
Combining two drugs used to treat fibromyalgia safely improves patient outcomes, according to researcher Ian Gilron
Queen’s University researcher Ian Gilron has uncovered a more effective way of treating fibromyalgia, a medical condition characterized by chronic widespread pain typically accompanied by fatigue, as well as sleep, mood and memory problems.
The results of the trial suggest that combining pregabalin, an anti-seizure drug, with duloxetine, an antidepressant, can safely improve outcomes in fibromyalgia, including not only pain relief, but also physical function and overall quality of life. Until now, these drugs have been proven, individually, to treat fibromyalgia pain.
