Will it affect me at work? Have 2 small kids can't feel slugish. Plz share ur experience. I've had Fibro for 2 1/2 yrs. Ihave panic attacks & depression allready. I've read a news letter for them to pull it off the market. Don't know what to do???
Hi christi ann: Go ahead and get started. I've been taking Savella since July but it does not help me at all. However, I've read that it does help others. We're all different with different needs. Perhaps it will help you.
My blood pressure went up in the beginning so I had to increase slowly per my doctor's instructions. I have high blood pressure and I'm taking meds.
It's impossible to answer your question about affecting you at work because again we're all different.
I have not heard anything about pulling it off the market. Where did you read that?
I have been on Sevella for about 5 months now. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia at the same time I started taking it. I love it! It has given me more energy and I don't wake up with as many aches and pains in the morning (unless it's raining out). The only issue I have had with it is that sometimes it's hard for me to fall asleep. I have started taking my evening pill earlier, around dinner time instead of at bed time. I also take Imiprimine at night to help me sleep and it also helps with my headaches (the only thing the Savella wasn't helping). I still have days where I'm tired, etc, but it has increased my quality of life greatly. Good luck!
I've been taking Savella since last April or May. I couldn't be happier. I have chronic fatigue and fibermyalgia. I didn't have depression, but was unhappy because I couldn't do anything for myself or even do anything at all. I also take Provigil. Between the two, I feel like I got my life back. I've been smiling for months. It shouldn't affect your work. I am able to focus better now, I am able to do more, and I can think again. It helped the aches and pains a lot. Good luck. Hope it's working.
