3 New Drugs for Fibromyalgia on the Way?


(91outcomes.com) - A new article discussed in detail three new drugs that could be on the way for fibromyalgia.  Fibromyalgia, a condition with chronic widespread pain at its core, is a presumptive for Veterans Affairs disability claims for veterans with Persian Gulf service from 1990 to the present.


The new drugs that could prove beneficial for fibromyalgia sufferers include:


  • IMC-1, "a combination of famciclovir (Famvir), a common antiviral, with celecoxib (Celebrex), an anti-inflammatory arthritis drug," for an FDA-cleared Phase III clinical trial in 2017.
  • Microgabalin (DS-5565), "which relieves pain by binding to the body’s calcium channels," but, with, "a unique binding profile and long duration of action at voltage gated calcium channels."
  • Tonmya (TNX-102 SL), a new under-the-tongue formulation of cyclobenzaprine HCL 2.8 mg to improve sleep quality, and, it is hoped thereby, other fibromyalgia symptoms.

I was with the 1st Infantry 3-37 armor. I was with the 1st infantry Division 3-37 Armor and have multiple symptoms but all have begun to show within the last several years and the Wichita VA are denying due to not having a diagnosis or military medical records indicating symptoms within six months of leaving Desert Storm. They haven’t even given me an exam for those issues. Anyone have suggestions on what I can do to get the RO to change their minds?
