  • Fibromyalgia Patients Find Cannabis the Most Effective Treatment, According to Survey

    The online survey was completed by over 1,300 patients. The respondents were asked to rate the effectiveness of cannabis as a treatment for their symptoms, as well as the effectiveness of the three FDA approved drugs that are prescribed to Fibromyalgia patients – Cymbalta, Lyrica and Savella.
    Only 8% of respondents said Cymbalta was ‘Very effective’ in treating their symptoms, whilst 60% of respondents said that the drug ‘Does not help at all’. Cymbalta is used primarily to help general anxiety and major depressive disorders.
    Lyrica, a painkilling and anti-convulsant drug, had slightly more positive results, with 10% claiming it is ‘Very effective’. However, 61% claimed that Lyrica ‘Does not help at all’.
    Savella, a controversial drug used to modulate neurotransmitters, received damning results, with 10% claiming its effectiveness and 68% claiming, once again, that it ‘Does not help at all’.
    However, an incredible 95% of survey respondents admitted that cannabis is “Very effective” or “Slightly effective” in treating their symptoms. The results below display these results, which are overwhelmingly in favour of cannabis as treatment. Click picture to read article.
