Fibromyalgia Responds to Naltrexone and Hyperbaric Oxygen

Speakers at the American College of Rheumatology meeting were disappointed in the “inadequate” results of the FDA-approved drugs for fibromyalgia (Cymbalta, Lyrica, Savella) but were encouraged by results seen with low-dose naltrexone and hyperbaric oxygen treatments. These novel treatments are often available from alternative physicians. Sometimes oxygen generators can be combined with exercise to get similar results to hyperbaric treatments at a much reduced cost.
