I found this on AOL news this morning.....
NEW YORK (Jan. 14) - The Food and Drug Administration has approved a new drug for management of fibromyalgia, the manufacturers announced.
Savella, the brand name for milnacipran HCl, a selective serotonin and norepinephrine dual reuptake inhibitor, should be available in pharmacies by March, Forest Laboratories Inc. and Cypress Bioscience Inc. said Wednesday in a joint statement.
Until now, treatment has focused on analgesics, such as Tylenol and other acetaminophen painkillers, and sometimes antidepressants or muscle relaxants.
"Fibromyalgia is a complicated chronic pain condition, so it is important that physicians and patients have access to treatments that have been shown to help manage the symptoms that define the experience of fibromyalgia ," Dr. Daniel Clauw, an expert in rheumatology at the University of Michigan, said in the companies' statement.
"The introduction of Savella is important because it is the first drug approved to treat the symptoms of fibromyalgia using a composite responder analysis," he said.
The safety and efficacy of Savella was established in two U.S. clinical trials involving over 2,000 patients with fibromyalgia, the companies said.
I thought this may be interesting news to some. If you are under the treatment of a physician for fibromyalgia. This hopefully fingers crosssed may be that "majic pill" we have been waiting for
