I would really like your input.
I have struggled with fibro for a long time. Tried different meds on and off. Now my neurologist has recommended Savella and Lyrica. HAs anyone had experience with this combination? It has been a couple of weeks and I really feel no better. I thought that I might by now. I am still so achy and sore.
Thanks for your help.

The dr wanted to put me on Lyrica but between the price and side effects I'm not sure which scared
me more. I haven't researched Savella yet. I've reached nearly 4 months without dr. drugs now hope
I can continue. Been on my herbals for 11 months now and feel so much better. Not as grouchy,
sleeping better, and hurting a lot less.

I'm managing on malic acid, prozac and ibuprophen. Not pain free but managing ok. I don't want to try anything that hasn't been on the market for at least five years. Too many drug recalls for me.
