  Purpose

Antidepressants of all varieties represent a common form of therapy for many chronic states including fibromyalgia. The majority of antidepressants increase the levels of serotonin or norepinephrine in the central nervous system. Milnacipran is a dual norepinephrine and serotonin reuptake inhibitor and may be effective in the treatment of fibromyalgia.
