Anyone taking Savella and really strong dizzy spells? They last about an hour and happen about an hour after I take the meds. I'm only on the 25mg twice a day from the starter pack. I'm dreading the dose increase. This is the only side effect I have, so hopefully it subsides. Anyone have a similar story?

Hi Erica, welcome to the forum!

I am taking Savella 50 mg 2x daily. Luckily I haven't had any bad side effects. First I was on Cymbalta and was having dizzy spells and nausea. We all tolerate meds differantly.

A while back there was alot of discussion about Savella. If you go to the upper right
side of page one, you can put in a search for Savella and find some of the older posts.

If you haven't already, check out fibro 101; it is the first thread on page one. It has alot
of good information.

Good luck to you. Hope you find some relief!

That's funny, I took Cymbalta and had to quit because it gave me severe dry mouth. As soon as I was done with one water bottle, I opened a new one and so on. It was awful, but I felt great! I loved Cymbalta for the pain, I just couldn't deal with the constant bathroom breaks!
