Anyone tried to new fibro drug Savella?
Interesting........I am wanting to know myself now if anyone is on it. More and more drugs are now out for Fibro......it is good to know that it is reconized and being worked on.....
Thanks for posting this............Susan
I actually did. My doc gave me a 2-week trial. I had to stop taking it for two reasons:
1. It made me suicidal.
2. I couldn't afford it anyway.
Of note, I am already on Prozac, an antidepressant, so I didnt see the need for Savella with it.
I was on it for 21 days....of course had to go off becuse of the side effects. About the 6th day into it I had mad pain in my hands and feet area. Than many other side effects keep coming and coming. Couldn't drive, it was as if all my symptoms banned together. I really hoped it would help so I kept with it for as long as I could stand it.
because of side effects, i.e. anxiety and high blood pressure.
