Welcome to the forum Seekinchange,
I know you know what you are dealing with. You have lived with it for 4 years. Sorry to
hear you are still looking for the right med combo for pain relief. There are so many of
us still looking, myself included.
I am one that has been on Savella for 6 weeks, no bad side effects and no relief either.
Today I am having a doozy of a flare, I hope this isn't an indication of how this stuff
is suppose to work. I guess of all the meds I have tried, the one that seems to take the
edge off is Flexeril. I usually use it when I am flaring, so I don't take it on a daily basis.
There has been a lot of discussion on Savella here. Alot who have tried it had really bad
nausea. You can read old savella posts by going to the right upper corner of the page
and put in a search. I have not heard of anyone here finding relief using it.
Glad you have joined our fibromite family. Come here often to vent or ask questions.
