i have experienced alot of mood changes with this medication that I wasn't warned about by my physician.

I've been on Savella for about 5 or 6 weeks now @ twice a day. The past 3 weeks I have had very excessive sweating. Even while sitting in 72 degree A/C with a fan running on me I sweat profusely. It's very embarassing. Otherwise the drug works wonders for fibromyalgia. It's brought my pain level down about 50-60%.

Taking it for about 6 weeks, most side affects gotten better. Take early in day, with a meal. For me, its a miracle... I am so happy, have a lot of my life back.
