Trying to get iff Savella!!

Hello everyone, I have another question. I started Savella for my fibromyalgia months prior to being diagnosed with open angle glaucoma. You cannot take Savella with this type of glaucoma. So for a few weeks now I've been weaning myself off if it. I know there are side effects to getting off any drug. I've been on 200mgs. daily for 4 months. Does anyone have experience with getting of this drug? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
Thank you so much! :-)

Re: Trying to get iff Savella!!

I have no experience with that, but will in the near future with cymbalta. I'd suggest you talk to your Dr and see what advice you can get there. From what I understand most of these type drugs the weaning process is slow. I hope it all goes well for you

Re: Trying to get iff Savella!!

I just made a post about why I want to quit cymbalta..look for the ramblings post. it should be near the top because I just replied to it. It does work for the pain but guess I'm tired of the side affects. Theses drugs act differently on all of us, do lots of homework , get opinions, read about the side affects , withdrawl etc..and you'll be able to make an educated decision.
