The EULAR recommendations for the management of fibromyalgia are based on more than 100 reviews and meta-analyses of individual therapies and medicines.1 Thus, the quality of the evidence in making recommendations on effectiveness and efficacy is generally very high. In contrast, there is little published research … 
Comparative efficacy of amitriptyline, duloxetine and pregabalin for treating fibromyalgia in adults: an overview with network meta-analysis
TLDR
The data provide an indicator of the effectiveness of the three drugs evaluated, but as with other health conditions, tolerability and safety are important for the decision-making process and clinical management, so caution is encouraged in interpreting the data.
An update on emerging drugs for fibromyalgia treatment
TLDR
Slight improvements in the health of FM patients treated with drugs targeting a range of molecular mechanisms have been observed, but there is still no single drug that is capable of offering substantial efficacy against all of the characteristic symptoms of FM.
A theoretical framework to improve the construct for chronic pain disorders using fibromyalgia as an example
TLDR
A research agenda is proposed for developing a clearer construct of FM, and the ideal theoretical framework is one of overcoming the illness–disease dichotomy and considering reciprocal interactions between biology and behaviour.
Multidisciplinary protocol for the management of fibromyalgia associated with imbalance. Our experience and literature review.
TLDR
It is revealed that training supplemented with proprioception exercises has beneficial effects on clinical presentations and improves balance in patients with fibromyalgia, even if the positive results did not persist after the interruption of the rehabilitative program in the long term.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) for fibromyalgia
TLDR
The quality of evidence of all comparisons of duloxetine and desvenlafaxine with other active drugs was very low due to concerns about publication bias, imprecision and indirectness, and very low for serious adverse events in studies with a parallel design.
Comparing the efficacy and safety of duloxetine and amitriptyline in the treatment of fibromyalgia: overview of systematic reviews
TLDR
Both antidepressants are effective in the treatment of fibromyalgia, differing according to the patient’s symptoms and profile.
The changing states of fibromyalgia in patients with axial spondyloarthritis: results from the British Society of Rheumatology Biologics Register for Ankylosing Spondylitis.
TLDR
High levels of disease activity and the presence of widespread pain is associated with the development of FM in patients with axSpA, while low levels of the same variables and starting a TNF inhibitor are associated with recovery from FM.

EULAR recommendations underplay importance of severe anxiety and depression in fibromyalgia treatment
TLDR
The European League Against Rheumatism is concerned that updated recommendations on the management of fibromyalgia seriously underplay the role of the need of expert psychological and psychiatric assessment prior to the selection of treatment strategies.
