New Data Suggest Cymbalta(R) Reduced Pain in Fibromyalgia Patients With and Without Depression
Date:8/21/2007

INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- New data suggest that patients with fibromyalgia treated with 60mg or 120mg of Cymbalta(R) (duloxetine HCl) experienced greater reduction in pain severity beginning one week after starting duloxetine than those taking placebo (sugar pill), as measured by the Brief Pain Inventory Average Pain Score (BPI). The study, which included patients with and without depression, also showed greater improvements in patients taking duloxetine than in those taking placebo in scores on the Patient's Global Impression of Improvement questionnaire (PGI- I), which measures how the patient has felt overall since beginning to take the medication.

"Between 34 percent(1) and 62 percent(2) of those living with fibromyalgia will experience depression at some point in their lives. In this study, which included patients with and without depression, duloxetine reduced the pain associated with fibromyalgia."

Fibromyalgia is estimated to affect 2 percent to 4 percent of the U.S. population(3), the majority being women. In addition to chronic pai
