Hi Everybody!

I escaped the sweating side effect of Savella and I escaped the Nausea side effect of Savella but did I gain a low sex drive side effect??? It appears to me that my sex drive is totally gone since starting Savella. Is this one of the side effects? Has anyone else taking this had this side effect?

Re: Savella


I was on Savella for about 3 months and experienced all of these side effects. I was in ICU around the first of this month for a weird heart rhythm that made my heart quit pumping for just seconds at a time. It is called V-Tach. While I was there they took me off Savella. I have seen my Internist since and he wanted to leave me off of it until the Cardiologist cleared me, which he did on May 11th. I have to see my Internist this Friday and we are going to discuss whether or not to put me back on Savella, which was giving me a lot of pain relief from the Fibro.

Hang in there! I noticed that all my symptoms passed. The low sex drive? I don't know! I am 55 years old and have been married for a very long time, so I don't know if it's the Savella or that! LOL!
