I have been on Savella for about 8 months now and aside from the increased sweating, it's worked wonderful. However, about 2 months ago I told my doctor that I was getting some of the symptoms back, so he told me to add a pill at bedtime, so now I take 2 at bedtime and 1 in the morning. Recently, like within the last week or so, I've had increased back pain and I'm just wondering if your body can get used to Savella and stop managing the pain?
Thats bout how long it worked for me then all of a sudden it just quit and I was already on the highest dose recomended 200mg a day but ya I have heard from more than a dozen people it only works for bout 1 yr or less. even tho it doesnt work as much my doc wants to keep me on it. I get a lot of hot flashes and flushed from it.
