I have fibromyalgia for 7 years and nothing has helped me with my pain, by taking Savella I feel much better and have lots of energy. I feel that my life is back to normal after so many years.

Comment:
I have Fibro and have been taking this medication for 3 months. IT HAS GIVEN ME MY LIFE BACK! Pain is significantly reduced, energy is up and brain fog is much, much better. I had some mild side effects the first month taking this drug and on day 14 my blood pressure went way up. My BP had been borderline high for a couple of years so my Dr. put me on BP medication and now it is normal.
