  • I am currently weaning from the Effexor, so I can go on Savella. My pain has increased greatly in just a week from tapering the Effexor, hope the Savella works as good or better. I would not be able to take care of my kids or work if I didn't take the tramadol and aleve, they have been pretty helpful.
