For the first time, researchers at the University of Washington are testing whether two treatments are better than one for patients with fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia (FM) is a common and disabling disorder. Currently, no single treatment has been found to be totally effective for all who have FM. The University of Washington’s Fibromyalgia Research Program is currently conducting a study to compare the benefits of combining pharmacological and behavioral health treatments for FM. The need for a study like this stems from the lack of therapies that provide more than modest relief for the estimated 3 to 6 million Americans, mostly women, with the often debilitating disorder.
