Most treatments for patients with fibromyalgia can be provided in primary care practices. When clinicians, therapists, and community resources work together, a range of pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic treatments can be tailored to provide effective long-term care. Treatments found to be effective for various fibromyalgia symptoms, such as pain and problems with sleep or mood, include antidepressants and anticonvulsants. Additionally, other effective strategies include patient education, light exercise, and cognitive-behavioral therapy.
