Comment:
In light of other medication I have taken for fibromyalgia, this one has been the most effective, both for the pain and my mental status (fog). I am happier and able to work a full day at a full time job. I sleep better too. I take 100mg AM and PM. I have taken this med for 2 years with no noticable side effects. My insurance doesn't pay, but I gladly pay out-of-pocket for a med that works ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Savella was my last resort as all other drugs used for fibromyalgia caused horrible reactions. The key for me was to take 50 mg in the am and 50mg in the pm.
