Savella and suicidal thoughts

After taking savella for a month I began having non stop suicidal thoughts. One night I found myself on the suicide hotline. I committed myself to a 1 week lockdown program and they were the ones that told me it was the Savella. That was 2013. It's now 2022 and I have survived 2 serious suicide attempts. It's never gone away. When I read the original FDA application it noted that 1/3 would get pain relief, 1/3 would not see improvement and 1/3 would become suicidal. I'm furious! How did the FDA allow this drug on the market?! Be super careful... I would avoid Savella like the plague. ## I am so sorry this happened to you. It’s so scary when they use SSNIs and antipsychotics for other non-mental illnesses. They give Abilify to people with chronic fatigue syndrome and it...

Am I going to be ok? Should I do anything? Ughhh...sigh...feeling stupid right now:( ## First i was perscribed cymbalta for fibromyalgia and nerve pain in my back and feet. The side effects were horrible. My blood sugar level went way up into the high 200's. I had never in my life had high blood sugar . So they weaned me off, and my level returned back to my normal 70's and 80's. Next they put me on Savella, and i was told that it was not in the same family as Cymbalta.Well i took the Savella for 2 months, and my blood sugar went very high again, and it will not go down.

Discontinuing Savella

I was leary to try Savella since I had such a bad experience both while taking Cymlata and terrible withdrawal from it. The side effects from the Savella were terrible but I continued it for 8 weeks until I started having heart palpitations and chest pain. I have been off of it now for almost 2 weeks and I am experiencing more muslce aches and pains than I had prior to the drug. I have read where some people suffered from severe withdrawal from the Savella. Has anyone else out there felt there muscle pain actually got worse if you stopped the drug. I actually tried it because I was told it would help my severe fatigue and fibro fog. Neither of those were improved but I am now actually suffering with at least twice as much pain as I have ever had from the fibro. I also still have the con...

Accord Klonopin for Generalized Dystonia

Used to take Teva generic Klonopin. Teva has either been bought out by accord or Actavis. Accord is made in China and I have been on it for about 2 months. It does not work at all. I am twisting, convulsing, the pain is unbearable - I swear doctors do not read drug inserts or realize drug recalls. After the first month on Accord I called my doctor and I did not realize they had changed manufacturers. She called in Actavis 1mg and it helped immensely. Second month, went to pharmacist to get my generic Klonopin, told them to give me Actavis, not Accord. They gave me Accord. This stuff is worthless. I took it back to the pharmacist at CVS, told the pharmacist it was doo-doo and I wanted to Actavis. I told him Accord was made in China and they did not follow guidelines. He dismissed me and ...

What causes my neuropathy?

Hi. I have been suffering from chronic pain for over 4 years. It all started with right knee pain and weakness. I was diagnosed with a bakers cyst and went to PT.

My back pinches, ankle constantly burns, my knee is still weak with shooting pains with overuse, my foot now has begun to swell on the bottom and hurts to walk, my hip and butt muscle are always tender to the touch, and overall my right leg hurts to walk and move and burns when I sit to relax.
