From this study (2 years ago):
Since starting savella, I have had a reduction in pain, but lately it seems I am having some pretty intense mood fluctuations. It seems as if some of these are similiar to bipolar disorder, but I have never had these symptoms before. I have always had some issues with anxiety but it has never been so intense that I needed medication for it. Since I have been using savella though I do feel as if these symptoms are getting pretty severe. If this is a side effect of the medication or medications I take, I need to know so that I can discontinue the use of this medication or reduce the amount I take.
From this study (3 years ago):
I have vivid, intense dreams that affect quality of sleep. I wake up exhausted. They are constant. They started while on Dexilant but I can't convince my doctor that is what is causing it. I have severe reflux and have had pneumonia from acid aspiration so have to be on some kind of acid suppression. I took omeprazole some time ago and it had the same effect but not quite as bad. I am taking 60mg of Dexilant 2X day.
From this study (3 years ago):
May I safely take any of these in item 3 above for occasional pain?
