Maybe: Ssris may help with more than just pain in patients with fibromyalgia, namely, fatigue, anxiety. In fact, they may be more helpful for those symptoms than pain. On the other hand, snris (effexor, cymbalta) and tca (tricyclics - nortriptylin, amitriptylin etc.) do better than ssris alleviating the pain associated with fb.
