    I understand that savella is contraidicated to Lyrica and Cymbalata. Ask your doctor or Pharmacist as there are other drugs that are bad mixes like the above with Savella.

    It is not that it is conraindicated THEY ARE THE SAME CLASS, Cymbalta and Savella are in the SNRI class of meds.

    Savella having a much higher Norepinephrine response for the patient.

    Lyrica is like Gabapentin arm of therapy.....working toward the neurogenic pathway that gives us the pain sensation. So this one is different and I am not aware of it not being able to be utilized if on the other class.

    I wish you luck with your pain management choices in the future. Nancy B
