User Reviews for Milnacipran to treat Somatoform Pain Disorder

Also known as: Savella

TN Migraine guy · Taken for less than 1 month September 13, 2017

“Soon as I hit the 25mg mark I became ill - hot, fatigued, nauseated, severe agitation, and the worst trigeminal neuralgia attack I'd had in months (contradicting the Rx). This was poison to my system. I hate SSRI's and this Dr kept pushing it on me. Wishing you better luck.”

“This fixed 95% of what was wrong with me(Intractable hiccups, chronic pain, intractable migraine with aura with status, bilateral greater trochanteric bursitis, herniated discs ) with only mild side effects. My pain dropped from a 6 to a 2 on the Mankoski scale, I didn't hiccup once while I was taking it, I didn't have a single migraine. It was literally a miracle drug. Unfortunately, the generic isn't available yet, and I can't afford $60/month. The moment I can get generic, I'm going back on it.”
