Just passing along some info that might be of interest to the readers who suffer from chronic pain. In new clinical studies Cymbalta, a FDA approved drug for the treatment of Fibromyalgia, has been proven to reduce chronic lower back pain. In a 12-week study patients that took 60mg of this drug daily had significant improvement of their pain symptoms.
I will remind you I am NOT a Doctor 😉 So I cannot give anyone medical advice, but I thought I would pass this information along to you so that you can discuss your drug options with your primary care physician. Here are a few links discussing this new study:
If you are someone who suffers from Fibromyalgia, and are on Cymbalta, I’d love to hear whether this medication has helped your lower back pain or not. Please leave a comment!!
If you are someone who has had difficulty treating your lower back pain, you may want to research Cymbalta at length, and then go speak to your Doctor about treatment possibilities.
Gentle Hugs! TGIF!
