    That depends on the patients and their willingness to try lifestyle and dietary changes in addition to their medications. There is no simple answer.

    In the next year there is going to be a new class of antidepressant that is going to come out that will make major changes in many disorders(Agomelatine), fibro being one of them. It works on both depression and insomnia without the fatigue we get from the current sleep meds. This medication also has none of the sexual side effects of our current medications. I would assume any medication that doesn't have fatigue as a side effect will be most helpful for those of us suffering from weight gain problems. The medication is in final trials now. There is hope out there so hang tough .
