    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.
