I'm surprised that Merck isn't testing the Substance P drug for fibromyalgia, for which there is a documented dysfunction of
substance P. There's no widely effective treatment for fibromyalgia (although anti-depressants often help) and lots of people with it!

> Recently, Merck announced it will drop further studies of substance P for depression because one arm of a phase II trial didn't work out. Instead, they're going to study it for chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, for which it does seem to be effective.
