Actually Savella commonly causes loss of appetite ... and none of the reviews say anything about weight gain either.

No, Savella doesn't cause weight gain. One of the side effects are suppose to be a small loss of apettite. I am also on Provigil which does the same thing. I have lost over 40 pounds that I gained while I was unable to be active due to chronic fatigue. I had to do normal dieting and exercise, but I have had no problems with weight due to the medication.
