I was on Lyrica for some time and gained TOO much weight...making me feel worse and ache more....I need something without that side effect....have been on Cymbalta too ....will savella take the place of both?
Savella does not take the place of lyrica,at least for me it hasn't. I was taking lyrica/cymbalta until recently when it seemed to stop helping. My doctor switched me to lyrica/savella,and I am on day 11 of the titration pack. without any bad effects. My energy has increased, and I hope that continues,and my pain has been helped alot. I guess I was one of the lucky ones, I gained no weight with lyrica,even lost some :)
