    Abstract


    Fibromyalgia is a syndrome characterized by chronic widespread pain and associated with sleep disturbance, depression, fatigue and cognitive dysfunction. Polypharmacy is commonly used but supportive evidence is limited. Most fibromyalgia trials focus primarily on pain reduction with monotherapy. This trial compares a pregabalin-duloxetine combination to each monotherapy.

    SUMMARY:

    This double-blind randomized controlled trial demonstrates improved outcomes with a pregabalin-duloxetine combination over either single drug for fibromyalgia.

    That's Lyrica and Cymbalta for those who don't know the generic names.

    Thanks @Sushi I was getting ready to look these up. Unfortunately, I can't take either one but would be interested if others have tried this.

    Interesting topic @shannah

    Lyrica makes me brain dead and cymbalta makes me sleep for 20 hours a day. I guess being braindead and unconciious is one way to deal with pain :rofl:
