    I am considering getting involved in one of these trials - if I meet their requirements, and was wondering if anyone has had any luck with this medication.

    I am concerned about going off other medication and then not knowing whether I will get the actual drug or a placebo.

    I go to the doctor for a two hour appt in a couple of weeks and decided I would at least go that far. Even if I dont't do the study I am interested in the practice because they see a lot of fibro patients.

    My current doctor gave me Cymbalta about 6 months ago and it made me nauseaus. Elavil just made me gain weight and didn't help the pain.

    Has anyone been in one of these studies or is currently taking milnacipran? Any insight would be appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Sue
