Common Questions and Answers about Savella vs cymbalta for fibromyalgia

cymbalta

Avatar f tn I've tried both Cymbalta and Savella for my fibro - Cymbalta did nothing for my pain at all - Savella made me HORRENDOUSLY jumpy, irritable, heart racing, loose stools, etc. I will NEVER touch it again. I've heard of it helping some people, but I've heard more negative reports on it than the good. Mine was definitely one of the negative experiences.
Avatar f tn I have taken Lyrica 600 mg, Savella 100 mg, Cymbalta, along with flexeral and oxycontin together for a long time. I did not have any adverse reactions to this combination except that with the lyrica my hands go numb from time to time (for short periods.
Avatar m tn My doctor is sending me to be "tested" for Fibromyalgia. She has told me, and from what I have read, it is a disease that is difficult to diagnose. What test(s) do they use and how painful are the test(s)? Also, is Fibromyalgia a hereditary disease? My mother had it and my aunt has had it for the last two years. Thanks!

I am currently on several medications for a variety of illnesses but for my fibromyalgia pain I take oxycontin-120 mg every 12 hours, percocet-10 mg three times daily, and soma 350 mg three times daily.I have no side effects whatsoever (I started the oxy at 20 mg twice a day and have increased slowly to my current dose after 5 years). That said-I started out with tylenol #3 years ago!
Avatar n tn I am wondering if prescribing topamax for ddd is common among neurologists? I can't seem to find any other information related to topamax as a pain med, only information I have is that it's a powerful drug with lots of side effects, most not so good. The weight loss aspect is the only plus...also could this drug alter my brain function since I know it is used for bi-polar and seizure disorder...
Avatar n tn After about 20 minutes of walking around and after first morning void, pain disappears for remainder of day. Could this be a pinched nerve or nerve compression? Had MRI of lower lumbar which showed normal...chiro recommends stretching excersises, something serious has to be wrong with this kind of pain. If anyone has any ideas it would be GREATLY appreciated!!
