    I took Savella for the required 3 months to titrate up to the max dose. It was not the drug for me. It didn't help at all and caused severe constipation. It is really an old antidepressant that was given a new name and labeled for fibromyalgia.

    What have you tried that has helped you deal with some of the symptoms,? I've been on a bunch of different medication and none of them has worked

    Yes I've been on Savella for about 10 years it has been known to give some people rapid heart rate which I have but I spoke to my cardiologist and I told him that the Savella helps me with the low energy and fatigue and he said it's probably the Savella making my heart rate go up but if I want to stay on it it's high but it's not dangerously High

    Re: Savella

    It gave me Tachyecardia that landed me in hospital twice. I still take meds for the rapid heartbeat. It never seemed to go way even after an ablation procedure. Cymbalta works like like Savella so I can't take that either.
