Any Opinions on Savella?

I am on day 6 of the Starter pack. Just wondering if anyone has positive/negative things to say about their Savella experience??

Re: Any Opinions on Savella?

Hi there
I love the savella. I have been on. Ymbolta, lyrics & nuerontin. My pharmisist recommended savella. I believe it doesn't go through the liver.. so easier on the liver. The first 2 months I would get hot flashes but that has passed. Ive never been one to sweat & will vet spittle sweaty now sometimes...
it seemed to give me alittle energy but someone mentioned (Goober) its short lived & they are right. I over exercised during that time & have been paying for it the last two weeks... So if you notice more energy, don't over do it...
hopefully you do well on it!

Re: Any Opinions on Savella?

I'm glad to hear that it is working well for you! So far I have minimal side-effects: dry mouth, nausea, some dizziness. Also I have worked out twice since I started it (running) and have gotten major chills when it is 80 degrees outside! I have done a little bit of research about it and its something about my body is not regulating temp. properly... Idk.
I have felt any improvement yet on my aches and pain, but it's still early!!

I'm so glad you are so active on these message boards

Re: Any Opinions on Savella?

I may have had the dry mouth, dizzieness & nausea but hard to say... Those are normal symptoms for me & sometimes they are just worst than other times... Nausea gets really bad. If I'm going through a phase where I'm pretty much always nauseous, if I flare up at all I get sick sick ugh

Those side effects may go away in time like my hot flashes did... Hopefully...

With Cymbolta, Lyrica, Nuerontin & Savella they don't feel like they help with pain... But I have went off them going med free & the pain was unbearable... So I know they work even though it doesn't feel like it....

Re: Any Opinions on Savella?

I tried savella and it just took the edge off the pain...it did not offer me long term help with my extreme pain. I am on cymbalta and lyrica together twice a day and they work amazing...I hope you find something that works for you
