If you have fibromyalgia, has your doctor has prescribed nefopam also known as
Acupan, as a strong painkiller for you? Have you suffered any side effects? Does it suit you and kill off your pain?

Professor Patrick Wood, M D, well known for his fibromyalgia and brain imagining research in Canada, would like to know the answer to these questions to help him with some research.

Although not available in the United States, it is prescribed here in the UK as a non-opioid medicine. I understand nefopam is described as a useful alternative to other painkillers that work on the brain as it produces less side effects that opioid medicines and is said to be more effective than non-steroidal anti-inflammatories.

Professor Wood is anxious to hear from anyone who has taken nefopan to help with the pains of fibromyalgia. Please tell him how effective you found it, how long you took the painkiller, the dosage, and whether it was in tablet or injection form. Side effects are said to include dry mouth, blurred vision and drowsiness. Did you have any?

Please write direct Professor Patrick Wood at

with as much detail as you can about the medication. Thank you for your help.

About FMS Global News

Folllowing Rick Usher's death in December 2008, at his request in September of that year, I had agreed, as his principal contributor and an experienced journalist, to run the FMS Global News service due to his heavy commitments to music and raising research funds through this avenue. Following his sad and sudden death I hope to continue his work as he would have wished.
