1.Primary Outcome
Title Time to First Loss of Therapeutic Response (LTR) Following Randomization to Milnacipran or Placebo.
Hide Description During the open-label period, 20 patients out of 116 enrolled had a reduction from baseline (Visit 2) of at least 50% in their pain, were classified as responders and were randomized (Visit 7). A Loss of Therapeutic Response was said to occur if, during the double-blind treatment period, any of the following occurred: • A worsening of fibromyalgia requiring an alternate treatment OR • An increase in 1-week mean of daily pain ratings (11-point numeric rating scale) to greater than 70% of Baseline (Visit 2) OR • Withdrawal from the study for any reason except withdrawals due to extenuating circumstances
Time Frame Change from Visit 7 (Week 8) to Visit 10 (Week 16)
Hide Outcome Measure Data
Hide Analysis Population Description
The Open-Label Safety Population consists of 116 patients who took at least 1 dose of open-label milnacipran. 20 patients who were randomized to a treatment group (Randomized Population) took at least 1 dose of double-blind treatment (Double-blind Safety Population) and were analyzed as randomized (Double-blind Intent-to-Treat [ITT] Population).
Arm/Group Title Placebo Milnacipran
Hide Arm/Group Description:
Dose matched placebo, oral administration, twice daily dosing
Maximum tolerated dose (50, 75, or 100 mg/day tablets) was determined during the open-label phase of the study. Oral administration, twice daily dosing

No patients in the placebo arm experienced a loss of therapeutic effect during the double-blind study period.
2.Secondary Outcome
Title Patient Global Impression of Severity (PGIS)
Hide Description The wording of the PGIS assessment was as follows: “Considering all aspects of your illness, how do you evaluate the severity of your fibromyalgia?” The possible responses to this question were 1. Normal, not at all ill 2. Borderline ill 3. Mildly ill 4. Moderately ill 5. Severely ill 6. Extremely ill
Time Frame Change from Visit 7 (Week 8) to Visit 10 (Week 16)
