Medical marijuana is far more effective at treating symptoms of fibromyalgia than any of the three prescription drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat the disorder, according to a survey from NationalPainReport.com
In an online survey of over 1,300 fibromyalgia sufferers, patients reported medical marijuana was more effective than the big three pharmaceutical drugs approved by the FDA — Cymbalta, Lyrica and Savella.
The National Institutes of Health estimates that 5 million Americans suffer from fibromyalgia, a poorly understood disorder characterized by deep tissue pain, fatigue, headaches, depression, and lack of sleep. There is no known cure and the disorder is difficult to treat.
“The prescriptions that are available for treatment have more negative side effects than positive aspects,” said one fibromyalgia sufferer.
“I haven’t found anything! Please find a cure or at least a medicine that will take our pain away,” said another.
