Thanks JDUNK

I went on the website and am so confused.:confused: I am on day 5 and have already suffered from a panic attack, severe sweating and flushing to the point where random people are coming up to me and asking me if I am alright. It is downright embarassing!:o As we speak, I have not slept in 36 hours because of the insomnia! A lot if people are quoting to stick with it for the 2 week starter pack and the symptoms will start to go away, others are saying to stay far away from it because they are feeling worse!!!! I don’t know what to do…… I have tried ALL the other meds out there in the last 8 years. Savella is really my last chance at conventional medicine. I have had severe reactions to all the meds such as memory loss and fatigue where I couln’t be out of bed for longer that for hours a day. That is not ok for a 34 year old mother of 2 small children. My husband is tired of feeling like a single dad and I don’t blame him. I guess I am going to have to suffer for the trial period, stick it out and PRAY that they start to taper off. if not, it’s back to……. well, it’s back to treating my symptoms with vicodine, xanax, lots of sleeping pills and adderral for the day…………… WOW! Is this what life is going to be like for the rest of my life??????
