Fibro Doctors Chose Pfzier Over You

To Read the Full Article, click HERE.

According to this article, a program funded by Pfizer concluded that Lyrica, Cymbalta, or Savella or cognitive behavioral therapy is the only answer to your fibro symptoms! If you go to a healthcare provider that only considered these options, you need to find another provider.  Pfizer promotes these as the roadmap to sucess for fibro patients, but this is not reality. What you need to know is that for these drugs, each one only works in one out of 8 to 15 patients ... that is they only work for 6-12% of the fibro suffers trying these drugs!!!!  So beware of physicians who only provide these as options for fibro relief.

You should also be aware of new criteria that appeared in print in 2010: these criteria don't require a doctor to examine or talk to you; identifying your illness has been reduced to filling out a 2-page form.  The criteria were disguised as an easier way for primary care providers to diagnose fibromyalgia, but more than likely, it expands the diagnosis to anyone who has muscle pain and trouble sleeping.
