If you have till now been trying the tried and tested fibromyalgia medicines without much success there is good news for you because a new medicine for fibromyalgia has been found which very recently was given its approval by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This new medicine for fibromyalgia is none other than Milnacipran HCI or Savella which is believed to be very effective in managing fibromyalgia related pain as well as fatigue.
Milnacipran is the third new medicine for fibromyalgia that has won approval from the FDA though it is the first drug being introduced into the US that specially treats fibromyalgia. The good news for people that plan on trying out this new medicine for fibromyalgia is that Milnacipran is safe as well as effective as revealed by a study of its use on more than two thousand patients of fibromyalgia.
When this new medicine for fibromyalgia is taken in dosages of between one hundred milligrams per day and two hundred milligrams per day it showed significant benefits to the patient who got considerable relief from the pain and in addition it is a medicine that also helped improve the patientâ€™s physical functioning as well. The only downside to using Milnacipran is that it can cause the patient to feel nauseous.
Of course, Milnacipran is a medicine that can also cause side effects that include dry mouth, constipation, hot flushes, profuse sweating and hypertension as well as accelerated heart rate and even palpitations.
Milnacipran is however a new medicine for fibromyalgia that is classed as selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors. Furthermore, the exact workings of this new medicine for fibromyalgia are not as yet known though it apparently does help in correcting brain abnormalities that are often the central aspect to making you feel fibromyalgia related pain.
Furthermore, when this new medicine for fibromyalgia was tested on animals it was found that Milnacipran had more norepinephrine reuptake properties which in turn will help in the modulation of pain caused by fibromyalgia. The bottom line with this new medicine for fibromyalgia is that despite getting FDA approval it should still be used with caution.
It is also possible to treat fibromyalgia with the help of alternative medicines for fibromyalgia. For example, it is worth checking out Guai Protocol which is believed to be very useful in treating fibromyalgia related pain and which costs just thirteen dollars approximately for a bottle containing one hundred tablets.
