Do CFLs last in a ceiling fan fixture?

Most of the rooms in my home have the light fixtures as part of the fan and I want to use more cfl bulbs, but I am worries that the jiggeling of the fan will cause them to burn out or break. Has anyone used them in ceiling fans and would they reccomend it?

Have one in ours for the last 3 months. no problems
I've had them in mine for almost 2 years with no problems and I've got ceiling fans throughout my home.
~We had to switch out our dimmer switch to a standard switch(dimmers can cause bulbs to explode) but I definately recommend it. Our CFL's have been going strong in our fan light fixture for almost a year now.~
same here. the fan in our bedroom goes year round and i haven't had to replace those bulbs in nearly 2 years.
We've put them in our fans and they work fine---no problems.
I put them in all our ceiling fans (5!) when we bought our house almost 2 years ago. Haven't replaced one yet!
Yep, I haven't had problems either. Thanks for that tip about the dimmer, nuisance26, I didn't know that!
