Dr. started me on Savella yesterday. I have taken 2 doses of 12.5 mg. I keep having chills and then hot/sweaty/flushed. Should I be concerned with this? Should I contact doctor?
CALL your doctor immediately! You are having a serious side effect! Call the ER if this is on a weekend or better yet, go to the ER. Please don't take anymore of this medicine until you have been checked out. Go to the top of the screen to Drugs A-Z & look up Savella & check the side effects, now! I am very concerned for your safety. Let us know how you are doing. I am sorry I didn't post to you earlier, but having my own appointments today. Mary 632009
