Savella is a recently approved drug by the FDA to aid in the management of symptoms caused by the debilitating illness called fibromyalgia. My doctor prescribed a low dose pack of Savella for me just last month. All seemed well during the first 7 day trial. However, as the dose increased, side-effects arose. The side effects I experienced were mainly dizziness and blurred vision. I did feel nauseous often, too. Savella did help with the pain. However, in my case the drug started doing more harm than good. If you are a sufferer, you may or may not have these problems as we all are so unique from patient to patient. Even after my experience, I would consider trying Savella if you are suffering from a great deal of pain with fibromyalgia. I only decided to go this route myself of, trial and error, as the medication was at a low dose, the data looked good, I have been debilitated by pain, and my doctor was available to monitor my progress and/or intervene if I needed help due to an unwanted reaction.
