Core Tip Fibromyalgia (FM) is a multidimensional chronic pain condition that current therapies provide modest and limited efficacy due to the heterogeneity of the condition, contribution of peripheral and central components to the pathophysiology, and a range of co-morbidities. Drugs acting on novel and existing targets, such as melatoninergic, cannabinoid, dopamine, NMDA, angiotensin, orexin and opioid receptors, ion channels, bioamine processes and subunits have provided efficacy outcomes that improve the health status of patients with FM. An understanding of the pathophysiology of FM is providing potential targets for new medications.
