One of our readers sent this information a few months ago. If the study is still going on, and you’re in this area, you may want to call for more information.

Not all studies are bad, I participated in one a few years ago that is receiving national attention now. And I hear of studies all of the time using alternative treatments, such as acupunture, and these treatments and medications are at no cost to the participants. In fact, some even reimburse you for transportation costs. So, this actually made be a breakthrough study.

Here is the information that was sent to me:

A local radio station in SC advertised about a clinical research study being done. To see if you qualify for the study, you call 1-888-41STUDY (1-888-417-8839).

I did not qualify for the study, but I did get some information. It is a 6-month study, where you visit one of the doctors participating in the study every two weeks. There is no charge for the doctor visits or medication.

The medication that they are testing is milnacipran. The drug is already FDA approved and according to my pharmacist is being used to treat depression and fibromyalgia.

Just wanted to let everyone know.
