FM therpay: Anti-convulsant class of medications, especially Gabapentin and Pregabalin can be effective in treatment of clinically proved fibromylagia. Topiramate is also an anti-convulsant medication but acts on separate receptors. Along with a mulch-disciplinary and integrative treatment approach, topiramate may be tried in cases of resistant fibromylagia. Dual medication therapy may be needed.
