I have had Fibro for 40 years and have tried it all. I receive the best pain management with Savella. Really worked for me. However, I had drenching sweats 24/7 so I discontinued use. I am going to check with my doctor to see if I take it on an alternate schedule rather than daily, it will be effective and I will have less sweating.

My Psychiatrist has put me on both for my Fibromyalgia. I’m on 60 mg Duloxetine (Cymbalta) twice a day (120 mg total/day), and 50 mg Savella twice a day (100 mg total/day). However, from what I understand, everyone responds differently, so what works better for me, might not work better for you. The Savella helped with my CF, though.
