I had immediate relief from Savella, even on the smallest dose they put you on! If you are scared, don't titrate as quickly to the full dose…keep cutting those 25mg in half until you feel comfortable. I know they say it sometimes takes weeks for results, but this was absolutely not the case for me. Savella cuts my pain by about 70%. By the way, I am also on Celebrex which is like Mobic. I take that for arthritis pain. The two are a good combination for me, and I have no real side effects.
I hope you have the same experience as me, txcola.
Savella is different than other drugs in that it is an SNRI as opposed to an SSRI…you can google the difference easily.
