    Love Savella for my Fibromyalgia pain! But had to stop after a year from developing heart palpitations and SEVERE sweating. Wish I could find something that works as well as Savella without the side effects.

    I have fibromyalgia. My brain was always hazy and I could sleep 14 hrs and still felt dead tired. I noticed within a couple weeks of taking it that I could remember things and felt good when I woke up after 6 hrs of sleep. It has been a great drug for me.
