  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • Been on MS ContinSR 100mg, Tizanadine(Zanaflex) 4mg for 10+years and it does not much at all to help, also MS Contin 15mgIR in between. Pain is severe, fatigue is extreme, lack of sleep is hardest. Just started Temazepam for sleep,insurance co's. wants huge co pay for Ambien so had to go with something old for sleeep. Savella, just started on..no idea yet if it's going to help.
    Due to fatigue, lack of sleep, extreme bone and muscle pain bones have turned in degenerative disc disease. Exercise is what is impossible to do due to pain,lack of sleep.

    Female, age 52, Fibro and Ankylosing Spondylitis. I took Ambien for one or two years. Either a) didn't work at all,
    b) worked too well and I was hung over the next day or
    c) made me walk in my sleep. Once I cleanly the whole house in my sleep, which was a nice surprise the next morning. But once I took a huge butcher knife and hid it under the bed.

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • Please help if you are able.
    Background: Very Healthy, active 115 lb. 70 year old female. Worked out, lifted weights, 40 minute walk, 40 deep knee bends, 20 push ups, all daily activities until 8 months ago when became profoundly fatigued, with severe (incapacitating) muscle pain, literally overnight. Had to quit job, as too fatigued to work. Currently: No muscle pain. Debilitating fatigue persists.
    Current Meds:
    200 Tramadol daily, Chronic Severe Bursitis
    8 mgs. Prednisone daily, fatigue
    50 mcs. Synthroid daily, Hypothyroidism
    300 mgs. Gabapentin daily, Post Herpetic Neuralgia (Shingles)
    Savella Dose pack prescribed. Details below.

    Current Problem:
    Recently prescribed Savella dose pack to treat unremitting fatigue. Dx: PMR NOS. Also taking Tramadol 200 mgs. daily, 3 years for Severe Chronic Bursitis.
    After 12.5 msg Savella twice daily for three days, nothing different noted.
    Dose pack increase: 25 mgs twice daily for four days. After three days, noted moderate increase in energy. Dose pack increase to 50 mgs. twice daily. After three to four days felt increasingly worse: fatigued, weak, unsteady on my feet, heart rate 104 (typically 70-74). Fatigue much worse than before started Savella. Quit Savella.
    Question: I read Savella interacts badly with Tramadol, but how seriously for my body, and at what dose? Savella at lower dose (25 mgs twice daily,) was such a welcome therapeutic difference in fatigue symptoms. If possible, would like to restart Savella at 25 mgs twice daily. Would I notice if an interaction with Tramadol at that dose of Savella, and would it preclude taking them together? Looking forward to your report on others experiencing these interactions and symptoms.
