Hi its Rozzy,

How are all of you?? I hope you all are doing ok... I came to ask a question.. Went to see my Rhemy today and he now wants me to start on a trial of Savella along with Cymbalta and other meds.. I have a 4 week sample of it and I have to call him back on the 17th of March to tell him weather its working or not... Have any of you tried Savella?? If so how is it working for you... Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated... Thanks Everyone and have a wonderful evening..

Hi Rozzy12...I tried Savella...was given samples by my dr...I only took it for 3 days because it made me very agitated...the least little thing would make me snap at someone...but everyone reacts differently to different meds & maybe Savella will help you.

I am not able to take Savella, Cymbalta or Lyrica...I had bad side effects from all 3...but again many people have little to no side effects with these drugs...so I would suggest you try Savella to see if it fits you.

I do hope Savella works for you.

Have a good day & God bless,
Debbie

My Dr wanted me to try Cymbalta or Savella but after reading the info sheet that comes with it we both decided they weren't for me.

I am on water pills and Warfarin a blood thinnner and both meds suggested if on them I could have more problems than what it is worth.

I hope they can work for you, everybody handles meds differently.

Hi FMily~

Thanks for responding I guess I will give it a whirl and see what happens... If I start to notice anything strange I will stop it and call the doctor.. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend

Hello, Rozzy....it's good to see you again! I have to say I'm a little surprised that a doctor would prescribe both savella and cymbalta together. They're both in the same family of antidepressants. I'm like Debbie....I couldn't take cymbalta or savella because they both made me nervous and unable to sleep.

I always like to ask my pharmacist before starting a new drug to see if they know of any reactions with what I'm already taking. I would just recommend that you be very aware of how you're feeling.

Take care and let us know how you're doing......ELizabeth
