Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Pregabalin or Lyrica is a better option for fibromyalgia.

This can be used with morphine for better pain control.

Milnacipran or Savella is another newer option for fibromyalgia pain management.

Thatcan be combined with morphine as well.

Please discuss these two options with her specialist.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
