Treatments for Fibromyalgia in Adult Subgroups

Forte ML, Butler M, Andrade KE, Vincent A, Schousboe JT, Kane RL
Record ID 32015000561
Authors' objectives: We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, PsycINFO, AMED, and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) plus reference lists of included studies and recent systematic reviews.
Authors' recommendations: Despite the prevalent belief that fibromyalgia treatments may behave differently in subgroups, evidence to date is largely insufficient for fibromyalgia subgroup effects of interventions other than duloxetine in adults with concomitant MDD. Future studies should be designed to support subgroup analysis to improve clinical applicability.
