  • From this study (8 months ago):

  • Anxiety especially noticeable while attempting to sleep.


  • From this study (10 months ago):

  • I have had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibro Myalgia, Wilsons Syndrome and Hashimoto's Disease for 22 years. I suffered an injury to the pelvic floor this last summer and am now experiencing spikes in blood pressure, anxiety that awakens me suddenly from sleep and sets in shortly after breakfast and general non-specific depression. I am wondering if one or more of these meds might be causing these three symptoms or contributing to any of them. Thank you.


  • From this study (4 years ago):

  • Given savella for fibromyalgia. It worked for a few months until I became suicidal and it didnt help my pain at all anymore. Taking Vicodin 5/500 2x a day for over a year to quell the severe nerve pain so I can function. Had ophthalmoplegic migraine, face was numb, as was L arm and leg, couldnt see in L eye couldnt hear L ear, heart palpitations. After a brain CT, MRI and MRA found my brain is fine:) Every Dr. I've seen recently thinks I should decrease savella til I am off it, as it's probably causing heart problems and hypertension. So I am trying to very unsuccessfully. Having panic attacks now every few hours for DAYS where my resting heart rate is 200bpm and my blood pressure is 180/110. A Dr. prescribed ativan, it helps until about 6 hours after I take it. My nerve pain is absolutely unbearable right now but I'm scared to take the vicodin I've relied on with the ativan, I'm sure two depressant drugs mixed are bad, but I'm crying in pain as I type this and the savella and vicodin withdrawal is hell. PLEASE READ PATIENT INFORMATION WHEN YOU TAKE MEDICATION. Not all doctors are perfect and because I was and am in so much pain I must endure more because my body is addicted to what I needed to function. Considering detoxing in an inpatient facility as although I never abused my prescriptions, feeling as though you will die at any moment really sucks. I have gone through detox processes of cymbalta, lyrica, and many years ago, heroin and amphetamines. This is so much worse and I hope savella gets banned in the US like it already is in Europe. My advice to anyone taking savella is TELL YOUR DOCTOR TO CHECK YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE AND HEART RATE FREQUENTLY. Is having a heart attack or stroke worth pain relief? It was for me until recently. Now I choose pain over death. I love my life too much to have it ended by a medication. Peace
