  31. 31. Milnacipran Creative Brief What is the challenge?To drive diagnosed sufferers to ask their doctor about Milnacipran and connect with sufferers on a more meaningful level, bydemonstrating a keen understanding of the condition and their physical and emotional plight Who are we talking to?Sufferers who have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia (primarily women ages 20–60) and are open to new treatment options toenhance their quality of life. What is their mindset?Fibromyalgia is about more than just pain. It can include symptoms such as sleep disorders, fatigue, morning stiffness, anxiety,and cognitive problems—symptoms that can reinforce and exacerbate one another. It’s a vicious cycle and wears on sufferersphysically, mentally, and emotionally, as they learn how to live with and manage the disease. Added to this daily grind is thefrustration they feel as a result of often being misunderstood by their family and friends, and misdiagnosed and mistreated bythe medical community. The disease becomes their secret—you can’t see it, and others are skeptical about it. Those whomanage the disease best try to maintain a positive attitude and are more proactive about their condition. The Idea Finally, there’s a reason for fibromyalgia sufferers to be optimistic. Reasons to Believe_New milnacipran does more than just treat pain: It’s a more complete treatment for the total fibromyalgia syndrome_It’s proven to help you function better in your day-to-day life_Milnacipran offers a true, comprehensive support program for the fibromyalgia patient How should the brand speak?
