Savella is absorbed following oral administration with maximum concentrations (Cmax) reached within 2 to 4 hours post dose. Absorption of Savella is not affected by food. The absolute bioavailability is approximately 85% to 90%.

In the FWIW department i saw this the other day "A letter Wednesday from Public Citizen calls on the Food and Drug Administration to pull Savella off the market, almost exactly a year after it was cleared to treat fibromyalgia"

I havent followed this drug at all but I would think it would be prudent to investigate it a little, I know I would b4 i took it. I have heard from friends that they have had good sucess with Lyrica. Again I can't comment personally as this is one of those rare cases where I have not used this particular medicine. Hope you find the relief that you need.

I took Lyrica last year for 6 weeks and it caused me to gain 20 lbs. in that amount of time and didn't even give me relief... that is why I am willing to try Savella. My relief has been amazing ;)

It started working within (2) weeks after I started taking it. I have been taking it for (2) months now and I have had amazing results.
