Re: Savella vs cymbalta

Sorry no one has posted an answer for you yet. Savella can work great for some but does take time to get full effects. It is a titilation process of working your way up to the full dose of Savella, starting with a starter/titilation pac from your doc. I've stopped it (Savella) cold turkey once before and had no problems. Others have problems stopping without cutting dosage over a certain length of time. To answer your question on Cymbalta, I'm not sure you should quit that cold turkey...I take it with the Savella now. I haven't tried to quit the Cymbalta yet. So don't know how that will go. I feel the savella works better than Cymbalta, but both of them together seem to help even more so. I haven't really found anything that works against a full blown flare, but overall helps to cope with day to day aches...Best wishes on whatever you decide..Gentle hugs
