    I am on week #4 of Savella and am incredibly dizzy...more than I've been in a couple of years. Now, I don't know if it's the Savella or my Meniere's acting up. This is the first time I've been on the board in a while and I didn't realize Savella could cause, I'll have to keep an eye on this.

    I'm going to try it for another month. It caused me some mild nausea for about a week, and it is now somewhat constipating; however, my pain level seems to be down a little. I am also on Lyrica...but since starting the Savella, I've noticed I'm taking a lot less Darvocet.

    Anyhow, good luck to you. Hope it works :)

    I am beginning week three with Savella. My pain levels are much lower and I am not having to take naps during the day. I am sooooo dizzy and today I have been stumbling and can't walk a straight line.

    I had so much hope in this drug as Cymbalta kicks my butt and I sleep my life away.
