Pregabalin Is First Drug Approved for Fibromyalgia. The FDA based the approval on two double-blind, controlled trials of approximately 1,800 patients showing that patients with fibromyalgia “have decreased pain after taking pregabalin, but the mechanism by which pregabalin produces such an effect is unknown". Rheumatology News. Volume 6, Issue 7, Page 4 (July 2007). (Also see: Fibromyalgia)
