Comments from related studies:

  • 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.

  • Laurie Rogers on Dec, 1, 2010:

    I was put on both of these drugs in October and November of 2010 and suffered from Serotonin Syndrome. I have since been taken off of both. The worst part of the entire ordeal
    was that I was never warned of the risks by my doctor when she handed me the sample pack of Savella, which also did not contain the full prescribing information. A comedy of errors by other people that caused me a lot of unnecessary suffering. I never would have agreed to take this kind of risk because I had just begun treatment, and my doctor and I had not even explored other options.
