... itching started yesterday. No rashes or hives just itchy, especially in scalp. Was supposed to take 25 mg. 2 times today but took just took 1 25 mg pill. Savella also gave the "the crazies" the first 3 days but today I'm ok and the fibro pain is greatly reduced. I first started on Cymbalta but had bad diarrhea. That continues even on a low dose of savella. Has anyone else had these side effects? I'm over 60, had fibro for over 25 yrs and wonder if my age makes me more likely to have side effects although I have no other present health issues or medications (except for ambien for sleep but only .5 mg. Any help will be very much appreciated. BRuthD
