I often have to take more than the recommended daily maximum of a drug because I have Celiac disease and don't absorb everything correctly. For example, I took 600 mg of Lyrica when the maximum recommended was 450 mg. My pain is not being completely eliminated with the Savella and I was wondering if anyone is taking a higher dose? Darlene
Hi Darlene, I have Celiac Disease also and I am the opposite lol. I have to take much less of EVERYTHING. My doc had me go up to 50mg of Savella, once aday in the morning and I was out of my mind & body. I never felt that out of it.
ALL my senses were distorted, could not think straight, talk, my eyesight was nil, and my emotions were crazy. I went down to 25mg in the morning and 25 evening and am much better. I don't know how long you have been gluten free and if your intestines have recovered yet? My biopsy after 2 months (at 61 yrs old) recovered completely. Now I am even more sensitive to any ingestion of things. Go figure, mindy
