I have time to post and wanted to update my experience with Savella. I'm on day 4 and don't really notice much of a difference in pain levels. In fact, I think I am more sleepy now. Of course, it is only day 4 and I have a ways to go to get to 100mg a day. I went up on the dosage today and was really nauseated. I ate before taking the larger dose and I was still very nauseated. I could only eat toast tonight and I did not take my second dose yet because of the nausea. I will probably take it tonight right before bed so I can sleep the nausea off.
I am not giving up. My doctor wants me to push through becausae he thinks it will help me. Others have told me the same thing also. Anyway, this is my update for now. I will update again in a few days. Wishing everyone a nice and painfree day.
