Hey all, I tried Savella and it made me totally depressed and borderline suicidal, needless to say I got off that really quick. I had the same reaction to Lexipro as well. But my body reacts so strangely to meds sometimes. NSAID's make me itchy and break out in hives, Ultram made my throat start closing up, I have a similar reaction to shellfish. I kissed my DH after he had been eating mussels and almost immediately my lips started to itch. Tried Lyrica for a while, got up to 150mg 3 times a day and it did nothing for the joint pain, only thing it did do was make me totally numb during sex. WAH!!! I'm goin to a pain management clinic next month and I hope they can give me some better solutions then just Lortabs all day. Just be careful with the antidepressents because there is a warning about
severe mood chnages. Good luck and God Bless. Jennifer
