Off Savella

Hi everyone,
I wanted to let you all know that I took myself off of Savella. I was suffering from migraines, nasuea, insomnia, increased pain, and worst of all, depression. It was strange. I told my doctor that although an oxymoron, I was depressed, and emotionally numb at the same time. I discussed with my husband, who said I should ride it out, but told him that my thoughts were dark. I wasn’t feeling happiness at all. I was emotionally detached from the world and wanted it that way. I knew that it was only a matter of time before my thoughts of unhappiness would turn into thoughts that could endanger my relationship with him and my children. It just wasn’t worth it. I lasted 12 days! I just can’t go on with it…… There is too much at stake. Besides, my track record with all my other meds haven’t been to my favor and the side effects on those weren’t half as bad as on Savella…..:(
