A small study compared acupuncture and fluoxetine in the treatment of fibromyalgia in 30 patients. In the course of 4 weeks, the participants receiving acupuncture had fewer areas of pain than the patients receiving fluoxetine. The researchers also state that the acupuncture patients had less fatigue and anxiety a year later.
