Customer Question

I need a list of 5-6 medications that treat depression and fibromyalgia together.

This is Dr. David

the only medication proven to treat both depression and fibromyalgia is cymbalta (duloxetine)

Lyrica and Savella are approved for fibromyalgia, but don't treat depression.

there are many many anti-depression medications, but they don't treat fibromyalgia.

have you tried cymbalta before?

I asked for a list. I did not say they were for me. And when the pop up chat asked if they could help they did not listen to a thing I said. Why didn't you just say there was only one medication you knew about and give me a list of other medications for just depression or fibromyalgia.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 months ago.

I gave you one because there is only one medication which can treat both fibromyalgia and depression. that is cymbalta. there are no other medications approved by the FDA for both conditions.
