I have been on the Savella for almost a week and a half now and I think I have noticed some small changes. I am definitely doing better, but, not sure if it is the increase of pain medicationor the Savella yet. I am taking my MS Contin on a regular three times a day basis. That is hard for me because if I am not in pain, I forget to take my pain medication, then I get in horrific pain and I am back pedaling. I am always "chasing the pain" so to speak. Now that I am taking it three times a day, I feel that it is keeping my pain at a dull roar. I have only had several times that my pain has gotten bad. That is wonderful!!! My anxiety is much better. I am not fearful of the pain so much! Also, I think I have more energy and I think the Savella is giving that to me. I have not had to take the Adderall so much. That is wonderful because the Adderall causes me to feel jumpy and agitated. The Savella is giving me nausea, but, I am told that will pass and I am just praying for the day that it does. I have had some dizziness too. But, all in all, I am feeling fine and very hopeful. I went to a disability attorney yesterday and she gave me to scoop on what I need to do to begin disability. First, I need to be out of work for 6 months of course. That will be a while I think... She was good so I will look her up in about a year or sooner if this Savella does not work...
Another doctor to scratch off my list!
