aDifference in mean change from baseline compared with placebo, using the baseline score as covariate. bFIQ scores for each assessment range from 0 to 10, with higher scores indicating greater impairment (total score range is from 0 to 100). cSF-36 health survey scores range from 0 to 100, with higher scores indicating better patient status. *Indicates statistical significance at the P <0.025 level. CI, confidence interval; FIQ, Fibromylagia Impact Questionnaire; LS, least squares; SD, standard deviation; SE, standard error.
