Dear folks, I started Savella on the advice of my doctor, who stated that he felt Lyrica and Cymbalta were ineffective, and, althought it was new, all of his patients were having "excellent results." That's a pretty big statement, so I asked for a sample before I paid for another drug that did not give me my life back. By the way, he also stated that these patients had gone back to work, which is where I wanted to be! I have been on it three days, and went from nearly unable to think through pain, to visiting with my neighbors, washing my hair (yes, that was too much to even tackle!), balancing my checkbook (I could not sit at a desk), humming to myself, and generally feeling quite lighthearted. In other words, 0 to 50. "60" would have been a complete reversal of all of my symptoms, which, lets face it, probably isn't gong to happen. If it does, great. This improvement is so huge, and the drug is so new, that I wanted to share something you could "take to the bank," so to speak. I am the manager of a local business, and have been training someone to take over my business. My relief shows on my face. My eyes are bright, my skin a normal color, and my pain level is so low that I'd have to categorize it as 1.5. You may want to ask for a sample, just to make sure. I hear it's expensive, but if it gives me my life back, I would gladly pay it.
