Can a prescription be a part of my overall fibromyalgia treatment regimen?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved three drugs for fibromyalgia: pregabalin, duloxetine and milnacipran. Your doctor may prescribe one of these drugs for you as well as other medicines for relieving pain, improving sleep, fighting depression, reducing stomach discomfort or relieving other symptoms you might be experiencing because of your fibromyalgia. Talk to your doctor about your symptoms. Together you can develop a treatment plan that's right for you.
