Literature shows high rates of comorbidity between fibromyalgia (FM) and mood disorders, especially major depressive disorder (MMD), reported in more than half of the cases.

Abstract

Literature shows high rates of comorbidity between fibromyalgia (FM) and mood disorders, especially major depressive disorder (MMD), reported in more than half of the cases. Consistently, patients with FM also present high rates of mood spectrum symptoms, despite scant data are still available on the relationship with antidepressant treatment outcomes. The present study was aimed at exploring the clinical outcome of patients with FM-MDD comorbidity naturalistically treated with antidepressant drugs, besides the relationships between mood spectrum symptoms and the treatment response.
