    I have tried Savella and although I could tell a difference in the pain level, I am having constipation with it at the 25mg dosage, which I went up to after taking 12.5mg for two months. I had less pain and more energy. So now I have been off of it for two weeks and having anxiety but this is getting better each day. I went cold turkey due to the constipation, I didn't see it listed as a side effect, so wondering if it's just me and my IBS. Everything is calming down, and this is the second time that I've taken it, each time less pain, but each time constipation when I try to go to a higher dosage. Thinking I will go back to 12.5mg but not sure how long it will work for me before my body gets used to it. Oh what fun...
