    I can not tolerate the SSNRI's but fortunately do the SSRIs.

    For those that can toldrate the SSNRIS, I hope it helps.

    Thanks for the article and take care.

    I've already been taking an older SNRI for a while now for depression. Cymbalta was recently approved for fibromyalgia by the FDA. I've gotten over the side effects and it's working just fine. I doubt if I'll jump to another drug just because it's new. But if someone has had no relief from any older drugs, it may be worth a try.

    I've been using this drug (as part of the study) for two years, study name milnacipran. It changed my life! For the most part, I am pain free.

    If you don't have blood pressure issues, this drug is worth a try.
