  • I have become increasingly obsessive. I was switched to generic Geodon and it was not working. I have been on 60 mg of Geodon for about a month. I am feeling somewhat better ], but still worry a lot.

  • 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.
