Hi Ramie, I have been on Savella for about 10 weeks without any bad side effects. It did take
seven weeks before it kicked in for me. I notice that it has really helped the burning muscle
achiness. I have tried Cymbalta and could not tolerate the nausea.
There has been a lot of discussion in the past about savella, if you go to the top right side of
the page; you can put in a search for savella and you can read some of the old posts.
I also use Flexeril, a muscle relaxer when I am flaring. Good luck to you and hope you
find pain relief soon. Almost forgot, it is important to excercise to keep from getting stiff.
Walking is great, relieves stress and builds muscle.
