Has anyone on or taken savella? My pcp felt it might help with my depression, and fatigue.

I have not heard of this med. I take Prozac & Wellbutrin & for the most part it helps keep my depression at bay.

Thanks for the threads :) from what I have read here and some other places it a hit or a miss med you love it or hate it. Only thing that really scares me which sounds really vain is many have their hair break off or fall out when they are on it :( my is already cut short and thin from breaking. Good new I just ordered two new summer wide brim hats.

Yes, they tried me on savella but it made me really nauseas (I have a really weak stomach) so they put me on something else. I am now on methotrexate and prednisone. Hopefully the savella will work for u! I personally just couldn't tolerate it. Def take it with food!
