Hi Marlee & Missy!
Yeah, after reading that article there seems to be quite a few serious risks with this med so whoever tries it should probably be very carefully monitored for adverse reactions which might turn out even worse than the fibro symptoms they are trying to relieve! I would be real curious, though, to hear from anybody who does give it a try and what their experiences are with it.
Marlee, thank you so much for the warm welcome back. It's become a rare occasion that I get to visit here or any website for that matter other than if it's work-related. The economy has taken a huge toll on my workplace so I live with the perpetual "ax of layoff" hanging over me daily as the company struggles through this mess. Things are absolutely crazy and so downright uncertain right now so you can imagine how my fibro is reacting with all the unbelievable stress and tension this is causing. By the time I get home from work the last thing I want to see or touch is a monitor and keyboard! (LOL) Thank God that the atp/glutathione injections are still working so well or I might be trying that Savella stuff myself, despite all the risks, while I still have my insurance intact.
I'll try to drop by and visit more often when I can sweetie......I really miss all of y'all too!!! (If I do get laid off I guess one upside is that I CAN visit more then - lol.)
Gentlest of hugs,
Hi, John! It's great to see you again but I'm sorry you are having all the stress in your life. But, I think most of us are right now. But I am confident that we will get back on track one of these days.
I have heard of the Savella but haven't really checked it out. I'm plugging away just fine on what I'm taking now. Besides, I like to take generic meds, myself. They have to have been on the market 20 years before they become generic. I figure by that time they will know if there are problems with a medication or not.
I hope everything goes well with your job and you make it through this stressful time. I hope you can visit a little, too. We do miss our men!
