Mirogabalin is a new drug to treat pain associated with fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is a long-term condition that causes pain all over the body. Mirogabalin is taken by mouth once a day at bedtime. If licensed, mirogabalin may offer patients with fibromyalgia an additional treatment option.
Bupivacaine and meloxicam (HTX-011) in a fixed-dose combination is in development for the management of post-operative pain. Post-operative pain is a typical example of acute pain. Acute pain typically lasts for less than 3-6 months (unlike chronic pain which carries on for longer than 12 weeks), and is provoked by identifiable stimuli and disappears as soon as the tissue injury or damage that had caused it is healed. All surgical procedures are associated with a certain level of post-operative pain. Opioids are often used to manage post-operative pain but carry the risk of harmful side effects, abuse and addiction.
