Most Fibromyalgia Treatments Not Supported by High-Quality Evidence

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Most therapies now available for fibromyalgia are not backed by high-quality evidence for their effectiveness in reducing pain or improving quality of life (QOL), according to a new research review.

“Out of 65 different therapies included in our review, we only found high-quality evidence supporting the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioral therapies, antidepressants and central nervous system depressants,” Dr. Vinicius Cunha Oliveira of the Universidade Federal dos Vales do Jequitinhonha e Mucuri in Diamantina, Brazil, told Reuters Health by email.

“Although the certainty about the effectiveness of these therapies is high, their effect sizes may not be clinically meaningful to patients,” he added. “It should be considered by clinicians in the decision-making process and discussed with their patients.”

Vitanica Fibro Formula, Fibromyalgia Relief Support, Saffron Extract 60mg, 5 HTP 100mg, Pea 300mg, Dr Formulated Neuro Muscular Support Supplement, Magnesium Bisglycinate, Vegan, Non-GMO, 60 Capsule
  • Fibro Formula supports the normal functions in the brain and body to maintain homeostasis in relation to balanced neurotransmitter and neuromuscular processes and responses
  • Magnesium is an essential mineral, responsible for numerous functions in the brain and body; supporting healthy levels maintains muscular and neuromuscular relaxation as well as healthy overall brain/body functions
  • PEA (palmitoylethanolimide) is an endogenous fatty acid amide produced naturally in the body and also found naturally in some foods. PEA has been shown to maintain a healthy response to stimuli and is increasingly being used to support homeostasis of the neuromuscular system
  • 5-HTP assists in the production and breakdown of neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine. Saffron supports an inhibitory effect on serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake which can therefore support maintenance of the body and the brain’s normal and natural process of response to stimuli and stress

My name is Michael and I have had fibromyalgia for a very long time. I have tried everything and nothing for it. Everything has worked and nothing has worked. It is a constant battle to find a glimmer of anything that may help, even a little bit. I hope I can help you.
