Is there a protocol for stopping savella?

savella effects neurotransmitters in the brain, so it is important to not stop the medication abruptly. You must taper off it slowly. Your doctor is the best one to advise you how to taper off the medication depending on things like what dose you were on and for how long. It is likely that you will have side effects like anxiety and dizziness if you go off this medicine too fast.

hope this helps,
