From this study (1 year ago):
I want to know if celexa will cause a reaction to the drugs I have been taking
as I am suppose to start it today for fybromyalgia
From this study (2 years ago):
I was aware that Savella might cause blurred vision, but am shocked and... incredibly frustrated that the single most helpful ("legal") drug in my battle against fibro is causing such rapid deterioration of my eyesight. In June of 2010, I tested OU(Both eyes) 20/20. within the first couple of months,I experienced the "blurred vision," and not long after awoke to complete blackness. Throughout the day, it slowly returned. My vision began to "come and go," eventually becoming unreliable and requiring glasses. My initial Rx, in November of 2010, was (R eye)od -.75 and -1.0 OS (L eye). Currently, my lenses are (R)od -1.25 and -1.75 OS(L), and are no longer adequate.
From this study (2 years ago):
I am trying this combination to see if i can get any addiional relief!
