I started this medication less than a week ago and I notice I sweat when not warm and also am having trouble sleeping, goofy dreams when I do fall asleep.
All of these are side effects of this medication. Check this web page out for more side effects:
I would call the doctor in the morning and tell him/her what problems you are having. Hope this helps.
Yes, I've been taking it for almost two weeks and my worst side effect seems to be sweating profusely. I have very fine hair, and at times it gets soaken wet. I also have a typically "ruddy" complexion, but on Savella my face gets extremely flushed. I have been having serious, bizarre dreams also. I switch from hot to cold very rapidly, as well. I'm willing to stick with it because it's already seemed to help some. A few of the side effects I experienced the first couple of days have subsided, so I am hoping these other issues fade over time. Good luck with it!
