UNITED STATES (www.incnow.tv) -- A popular antidepressant can help cancer patients suffering from chemo-related pain.
About 20-40% of chemotherapy patients experience tingling or pain in their hands and feet and doctors have not been able to find any effective treatments.
Researchers at the University of Michigan randomly gave patients either the antidepressant Cymbalta or placebo pills for five weeks. They found nearly 60% of those receiving Cymbalta reported less pain after starting treatment, compared to 38% of those on placebo.
