Got a New Drug

Yesterday at the rheumy he gave me a sample pack of Savella, which is an SNRI that just came out in the US a few weeks ago and is approved for treating fibromyalgia. You start out taking 12.5 at night, then twice a day for the next two days, then you take 25 twice a day for the next several days, then you’re up to the final dose of 50mg twice a day. My insurance covers the drug with prior authorization, so the rheumy filled out the form and faxed it in yesterday and it’s already been approved. I’m hoping it helps. Today I have less pain and am feeling a little better and last night I slept a little better. I don’t know if it’s the drug or just coincidence.

  • *hugs* I hope it works out.

    And in the sidebar, it says you really enjoyed the movie Sydney White. I finally watched it, and I loved it! 😀
