Should I Savella or keep Cymbalta?

From what I've been told Savella seems to be exactly what I need- it can help you lose weight, give you more precious energy, and of course help with the pain (chronic and fibromyalgia). I would love to hear personal experiences from those who have tried it, although I admit I am leaning heavily (no pun intended) to try it myself. Thanks :H


  • I guess I'll figure it for myself [(
  • Hmm. Sorry i never even heard of the drug, You probably the best person who knows if its worth trying it out, Even if others do take it they all will react to it diferent anyways,

    If you are not happy with what you take now then give it a try, I have taken so much stuff in the last 20 years, i already forgot most of them cause they did either nothing or just made me feel worse, Good luck
