Core Tip Fibromyalgia a multifaceted disorder remains a major unmet condition with current therapies providing limited control. An involvement of potassium channels in the pathophysiology of fibromyalgia and the related symptoms is emerging, and Kv7 channel activators, such as flupirtine and retigabine, exhibit pharmacological profiles compatible with the requirements of therapeutic approaches to fibromyalgia. Focused clinical trials with flupirtine and retigabine will provide important insight to the role of potassium channels and the utility of Kv7 channel activators in fibromyalgia.
