Hi, AKBWRITES, and welcome! I'm so glad you found us and joined in. I don't take Savella. Many of the members that have tried it stopped it because of side affects but there are a few that like Savella. Also, if I recall correctly, sometimes it stops working after several months. I do hope members that take this will pop on and give you a knowledgable helping hand. I'm just relaying what I have seen in posts.
Your side affect is listed under the "severe side affect" catagory. I personally wouldn't take it if that happened to me. I'm weird about taking the more powerful medications for fibro, though. But, here is a link showing the side affects of Savella. The decision is ultimately yours but it's good to be fully armed with information about what you are taking. Let us know what you decide to do because we really do care.
Be sure to check out Fibro 101...the first thread on the forum. There are links to good information about fibro and you will learn a lot there. It's important to try to understand fibromyalgia the best that you can because we usually have to be our own advocates with this illness.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you better. Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you. I hope to hear more from you soon.
