I have been taking Savella for over 3 months. About a month ago, I began getting "the shakes" at any given time. I have noticed this when first getting up. In the evening, I'd take *Savella with my anti seizure meds along with an 0.25Mg. Ropinirole to help with night time leg cramps. About 30 minutes ago, I decided to eat something before taking pills. Right now, I'm still "vibrating."
The irony: We mentioned this "vibrating" to my rheumatologist about 11 days ago. They said nothing. What did they do? INCREASE dosage from 50 to 100Mgs.. a day! **I got so constipated that I'd go three days without a BM. Then I took an enema FOUR TIMES before getting unclogged enough. So I decreased the dosage on my own to 75Mgs. a day. Better. But I still have to take enemas. ***I have NO sensation or "trigger" in the need to have a BM! This concerns me greatly. What concerns me the most is the doctor saying nothing. He seems to be smart, but more of a thinker. COMMUNICATION is a necessity to every relationship. Especially with one's doctor. I don't know the next step from here--whether to decrease more on my own or wait another 3 MONTHS for the next scheduled appointment. I'm SO tired of WAITING.
