I saw the information on how they've done Phase 3 of Clinical Trials for Milnacipran as pain relief for Fibromyalgia, and it's getting good results, but hasn't been officially cleared for sale in the U.S. or here in Australia. This drug is sold in Europe and Japan already as an anti-depressant, and I can buy it online. There is a site called aurapharm.com that gets good reviews and will send it to me. It's not even very expensive. I've told my doctor I want to do this, and even she sees the logic in ordering a drug that is already being used successfully overseas, even if it's for another condition (depression), but of course she can't "endorse" it or write me a prescription for it, so I'm on my own in making the decision to get it. I have devoted the 25 years I've had Fibro to trying EVERYTHING that comes along for the pain and fatigue, so that I can be a functioning human being. My question is has anyone else tried it already, and if so, what results did you get? This, to me, is the real value of this site (besides the moral and emotional support) - being able to share information about treatments, drugs etc. in case we can get better relief. So I look forward to any feedback about this drug that you might have. Thanks.
