So I just started the medicine Savella yesterday. Has anyone else took it before? I am not sure but when I first took it yesterday my throat kind of felt a little weird. Nothing major but I hope I am not allergic to it. I so want something to finally help me and feel normal again. I did notice though that this morning I wasn't as achy and tired as I usually am when I wake up. So that is a good sign. I did get kind of nauseous this morning from it but realized it is probably best if I have something to eat with it. I am only on 12.5mg's now until the next two days I go up to 25mg's. I noticed the 12.5 ones have a blue coating on it so if I am allergic to it I hope it's just the coating of the very little ones that I am allergic to. Cause if I go on a higher dose it would really suck if I get more of a reaction to it. Or can it just be a side affect to feel a little funny in the throat? I guess we will see in the next few days. I will be very disappointed if I am allergic to it cause this morning I have felt better than I have in a very long time! I have never been allergic to anything! Also hope the nauseous feeling doesn't feel worse when going on a higher dose. If it does I hope it eventually goes away and I can get used to it. What are other people's reaction to this med?
