FM: Naltrexone

GinaSelir Heroin Addiction Drug May Relieve Symptoms of Fibromyalgia - Scientific American
GinaSelir Inexpensive Drug Relieves Fibromyalgia Pain

Thanks for the interesting link. I have a high esteem about Dr Clauw and hope to see him in June in Copenhagen. I have lots of problems with drugs in the treatment of fibromyalgia, also with naltrexone. Effects are often linked to side-effects (higher rate in verum group), moreover lots of these adverse events aren't effects you find with lab tests but major discomforts like nausea, with the patient has to endure. As long as side-effects differ in verum and placebo groups on a high level, usual statics should be taken with caution.
