I just started Savella and have had severe stomach cramping and diarreha. I was on Cymbalta and it was aweful, trazadone seems to have worked for about a month and Neurontin sat me on fire. I really need to find something that works for my Fibromyalgia.
Some side effects with Savella are potentially serious and should be reported immediately to the doc/pharmacist who prescribed the med. Although generally rare, some of these side effects may be more common. These include but are not limited to:
Unfortunately diarrhea has been a side effect associated with medications like Savella, this is a rare but could be dangerous problem, however your doc/pharmacist would give you more accurate & professional advice.
Rajive is right. Also, be careful and keep well hydrated! Drink plenty of fluids until the side effects ease up. Have you tried Lyrica? I have heard good (and some bad) news about this medication.
I hope you feel better soon! I would let your doc know about these side effects.
Best wishes and good luck,
