I hardly prescribe drugs to treat FMS. It's because of the studies (and of course own experience). Look at for instance at L. Crofford's Pregabalin study: less than 30% in the 450 mg group had 50% pain reduction, no significant effect in the 300 mg and 150 mg groups. Only one of all adverse events (dizziness) was present in about 65% of the patients in the 450 mg group. More side effects than effects! Yet, the drug got an approval by FDA and EMEA.
