Advice & Tips: This is the 3rd FDA approved drug to treat fibromyalgia and I have tried all three. This one works better than Cymbalta and Lyrica for me, but I can't really tell that it is helping unless I have to stop taking it for awhile (a week or more) then I notice that I am worse.

  • Adherence

  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Dosage: 50 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: When I first started taking Savella I was titrated to a 50mg dose twice daily and it made me really nauseated. The next time I saw the doctor, I told her I was getting very nauseated after taking it, and I was eating before I took it. She decreased the dose to 25mg twice a day. That helped with the nausea, but the pain was still pretty bad.

Dosage: 100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: It is a great new drug. I have a cocktail of Savella, Lyrica Flexeril and Oxycodone and it works for me. I know that some day taking these medications are probably going to do something to my organs but it makes me function like a normal human being as much as possible.I have a high tolerance to medications so I don.t get the symptoms like some people do. If you met me you would never know I was on all these medications and for that I am Thankful.
