Both Sleep and Pain Improved
“Our new analyses of the BESTFIT data show that those patients who reported the greatest improvement in sleep quality were the most likely to experience pain relief,” Seth Lederman, MD, Tonix CEO​

A former study using EEG indicated the drug was increasing restorative sleep, which in turn was associated with reductions in pain, fatigue and depression. In a good sign for those in really severe pain, the most recent studies tied together pain levels and sleep quality; those FM patients in the most pain received the most improvements in sleep quality.
