I think so. The doctor put me on it about 2 months ago for my depression and nerves. I also take Paxil and have for a long time. Well, I noticed the pain is not as bad most days and lets up quicker. Even a tad more of energy. I wrote the people over at Bristol Myers Squibb and they called me last week. They said that they would turn this over to reserach and development to see if it helps others. I am on a small dose. Only 5 mg a day but I swear it has helped. I am far from cured, but it has helped.
I am thinking it makes sense. This drug works on dopamine which is one of the chemcals found to be off balance with FM patients.
Just a tid bit of info.
