    I am still getting advice from everyone, "how to treat my fibromyalgia". The last suggestion was to try Savella. I have had severe side effects from Lyrica. Is this anything like Lyrica?

    It is supposed to be available in the US some time this month. It has been used in other countries for some time. It is a combo of serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors. It seems to have a different ratio than some of the older ones (cymbalta is the most recent available in the US).

    Reports from other countries show help for fibromyalgia. It works quite differently from Lyrica. Since it is new, it will likely have a high price on it!
