The pharmacist said there can be a drug interaction and cause seritonin syndrome and also said that both drugs are redundant? Anyone have some insight on this? I having nerve pain issues and feel like my MD is passing me of as a psych patient, I'm frustrated. I am currently seeing a Neuro Dr. who prescribed me Lyrica until my nerve test on Sept. 9th, buth my MD said not to take the Lyrica, ugggg.
Is it common for a Dr. to prescribe Savella and Nortiptyline and say to take both?

I would take the advice of your Neurologist, a specialist.
Your pharmacist is correct. Savella and Nortriptylline should not be taken together unless closely monitored because of the risk of adverse effects ie. Serotonin syndrome.
