    I have had Fibro for 28years and have been on Prosak and Desyrel at night. My family doctor had put me on Savella 2 months ago. I had many adverse reactions. Hot flashes, feeling faint, breast swelling and pain, some mood swings and not getting much sleep.The nearest I can come to describing these reactions is that they were the same symptoms you get with pregnancy. Totally undesireable symptoms and really no help with the Fibro at all. I have had a really bad 2 months. I went to my pain management doctor and now she is weaning me off the Savella and I'm going to go back on my previous meds. The pain management doctor said Savella was too new and wouldn't recommend putting Fibro patients on it until it had been on the market a lot longer. I should have checked with her first but I usually my family docotr is on top of these things too!
