milnacipran 25 to 200 mg daily, divided into two doses (morning and evening)
- Change in self-reported severity of pain over 12 weeks of treatment in persons aged 65 and older [ Time Frame: 14 months ]
Percent change in self-reported severity of pain (averaged Visual Analog Scale scores) over 12 weeks of treatment.
Rate of occurrence of adverse events necessitating drug discontinuation
- Determine the effects of milnacipran on cognition [ Time Frame: 14 months ]
Change in functional activity (FIQ), perceived health (SF-36), and severity of pain (Gracely scale).
Incidence and severity of treatment-emergent adverse events. Change in sleep quality and daytime sleepiness as measured by the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index and Epworth Sleepiness Scale.
