In brief: Integrative
Treatment programs must be individualized.
Treatment programs are most effective when they combine patient education, dietary modification, supplements, medications, stress reduction ( meditation, yoga, deep breathing) and regular exercise. In addition, physical therapy, massage, acupuncture, chiropractic adjustments, and cognitive behavior therapy have all shown to help patients with fibromyalgia.

In brief: Some suggestions
Antidepressants are sometimes helpful - particularly lower doses of tricyclic antidepressants such as amitriptyline or nortrityline.
Lyrica (pregabalin) has FDA approval for fibromyalgia. As others have answered, healthy lifestyle modifications can help, as can regular physical activity, stretching or yoga. You may also want to read this about acetyl-l-carnitine for FM http://www.drerik.com/?p=82
