Has someone done this who has given it some time instead of recounting their 1 to 3 week experience, who can tell me their experience? I'm very afraid to experience withdrawal symptoms from Effexor? And at the same time deal with new symptoms from Savella. My doctor recommended going down a pill with the Effexor while adding Savella until I am up completely switched over.

I have severe migraines as well as depression. When the doctor advised me to increase the Effexor for the pain killer effect, I said no due to the sexual repression. I was then advised to take the Savella to better control my migraines at higher doses.

I would greatly appreciate if someone can provide their experience.
